UP dalit women

While the Uttar Pradesh authorities have been busy applauding themselves on the ‘Safe City Project’, aimed at women’s safety news of horrific violence against women keep becoming public. However, this news, of the alleged rape, torture and murder of a young woman, possibly Dalit, in Jugail Police Station area of Sonbhadra district, has not found space in main stream headlines yet. It is a few social media users who have shared the information. 

The visual of the mud covered body of the young women, splayed out, as a relative is bent over weeping, and another of a man who seems to have collapsed in grief, are heartbreaking and triggering. The couple weeping (as seen in a video shared by another social media user) near the young woman’s body are probably her parents, or close relatives, the police are seen and heard asking them to quiet down, as they begin to take notes at the crime scene. According to the information shared by the social media users, the victim was a young married woman who has allegedly been raped and murdered. When her body was discovered it allegedly showed that “a cloth was stuffed in the private parts,” and her “eyes, nose and mouth were filled with mud,” a sari was wrapped around the neck.

 

 

 

This yet another incident where horrific crimes against women have been reported from the state, where Governor Anandiben Patel recently inaugurated the ‘Safe City Project’, a 180-day-long campaign under which the police and other departments will work towards safety of women. Patel had reportedly said the movement of women police personnel in Lucknow will inculcate a feeling of pride and safety for women in the city. The Governor had flagged off 100 pink scooties and 10 four-wheeler police vehicles, the central government has approved the project for Lucknow at a total cost of Rs 194 crore with an aim to strengthen security of women in public places.

 

 

 

“Crime against women is increasing, and in this scenario, the responsibility of society increases. If the schemes meant for women are not properly implemented, they will lose their importance. Till such time that women are dependent on others socially or monetarily, they will be exploited. The women have to become empowered,” Patel said. The Governor also said, “There are people with criminal and perverted mindset, who derive pleasure by committing crime. Girls are harassed while going to schools. It is because of these people that women do not feel safe in the family. Police must identify these people, and act before they could commit crime.”

At the same event, Additional Director General of Police (Women and Child Security) Neera Rawat said, “The cost of the projects is shared between the Centre and the state in a 60:40 ratio. These vehicles have first-aid kit, flashlights and other facilities. The women personnel will combat crimes against women, which will make them feel secured.”

So far only Jignesh Mevani, the  MLA from Vadgam Assembly Constituency, Gujarat, has amplified this information. He has asked PM Narendra Modi to ask Uttar Pradesh Chief MInister Adityanath to explain to the nation why the state “has become a hell for poor dalits?”

 

However, there is no official word yet on this latest horrific crime reported.
