Mamata shouts at anti-rape protestors
Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Monday shouted at villagers protesting a gang-rape and murder, and branded the accused and the protestors as "CPI-M people".
Banerjee yelled at the protestors when women surrounded her and shouted slogans about the lack of security while she was visiting the gang-rape victim's family Monday at Kamduni village, 25 km from here, 10 days after the incident.
"Stop this CPI-M (Communist Party of India-Marxist) politics. I know you all are their people and even those who have been arrested for the gang-rape are all CPI-M people. These goons enjoy the support of the CPI-M," said an angry Banerjee. She assured them that the administration would seek the death penalty for the culprits.
Banerjee, who rode pillion on a motorbike to meet the family, said the case would be fast-tracked and justice meted out within a month. "The chargesheet has been prepared and will be submitted (to the court) within seven days. We will ensure that the rapists are given the death penalty," added Banerjee.
After Mamata Banerjee wrote to President Pranab Mukherjee urging action against former Supreme Court Judge AK Ganguly in the sexual harassment case, Bar Council of India Chairman Manan Kumar Mishra said that police can lodge an FIR in the case but the victim has to come in front and speak up.
