Women parliamentary delegation denied permission to visit Kulgam
Srinagar, July 24: The parliamentary delegation for women empowerment, presently in Srinagar, were denied permission by the state authorities to visit south Kashmir’s Manzagam village in Kulgam district to meet the 30-year old woman, who was allegedly gang raped.
The delegation, headed by Chandresh Kumari of Congress, was scheduled to meet the woman on Sunday. “We had planned to meet the lady,” a member of the delegation, told Greater Kashmir.
“Subsequently we applied for the permission to state government to allow us to go. The administration advised us that since the investigation was in progress it will not be feasible for us to visit the area. They had some issues with prevailing situation there as well.”
The MPs delegation, other than Kumari include Communist party of India (Marxist), Brinda Karat, Prabha Thakur, Rajesh Nandini Singh (both Congress), Seema Upadhyay of the Bahujan Samaj Party, Rama Devi, Jayshreeben Patel (both of the BJP), Sushila Saroj of the Samajwadi Party, Vasanthi Stanley of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, Jabir Hussain and Umashankar Singh, both of the Rashtriya Janata Dal
Noted Woman activist and leader of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) Brinda Karat demanded independent probe into the incident.
“We demand impartial body should conduct investigations into the incident,” Karat said.
She also castigated police for releasing medical reports and other information about the victim to the public. “The methods by the police are not in conformity with the well established norms to protect the honor and dignity of the women,” Karat said.
“It was wrong of the police that the detailed medical report and also CD of her statement were made public. It’s totally against the protocol of investigations while dealing with the cases pertaining to sexual assault of woman,” she added.
She said that regardless the victim’s complaint is correct or not correct the police cannot issue a detailed medical report and other statements which would denigrate the honour and dignity of woman.
“A strong action should be taken against the erring policemen who are leaking the information. They should be either suspended or strong departmental action should be taken against them,” Brinda added.
