According to Dr Bhattacharya, she was attacked by five persons around 7.45 pm on April 22 when she was taking a walk with a friend on the BHU campus.
“The apathy of the system dawned upon me when the Lanka area’s police, instead of filing an FIR, told me to keep my mouth shut. I kept going to the police station, but it didn’t serve any purpose. After the SP finally intervened, I was subjected to a medical examination. To my horror, it was conducted by two male doctors and a woman police inspector. I somehow prepared myself for this agony too, reminding myself that it could be no worse than rape!” Dr Bhattacharya recalled.
Adding to her humiliation, the police inspector dragged Dr Bhattacharya to the crime spot and asked her to re-enact the crime. “It was weird and eerie. He watched and listened to me as if we were going through the motions just because we were supposed to. A woman inspector even asked me for the motive behind my filing the case,” she added.
Time is not far away when Spiritual India will be known as rapist India unless Indian government take strict action to stop crime against women.
