First Incident: Woman defends herself against neighbor who allegedly attempted to rape her
In the first incident, the accused, who was a neighbor of the woman, entered her house and attempted to physically molest her. In an act of self-defense, the woman used a sharp-edged object hidden under her bed to cut off the man’s genitals. The accused is currently being treated at Nagaon Civil Hospital, and his condition is critical.
The woman lodged an FIR against the matter at Batadrava police station. She claimed that the accused has a history of sexually abusing other women and that his family members threatened her not to report the matter to the police. The Batadrava police have initiated an investigation into the matter.
Second Incident: Woman defends herself against uncle-in-law who allegedly attempted to rape her
In the second incident, the accused, identified as Nur Hussain, is the uncle-in-law of the victim. The incident took place while the victim’s husband was away from the state. The woman reportedly took matters into her own hands and chopped off Nur Hussain’s genitals with a sharp blade to protect herself. The accused has been admitted to a private hospital in Guwahati, where he is receiving treatment for his injuries.
The victim woman has filed an FIR at Batadrava police station in connection to the case. Meanwhile, it has been learned that Nur Hussain is a member of the Nagaon district unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
These incidents have sparked outrage and debate on social media, with many people commending the women for their bravery in defending themselves against sexual assault. However, some have also expressed concern about the use of extreme measures in self-defense.
In response to the incidents, Batadrava police have issued a statement urging people not to take the law into their own hands. “We understand the gravity of the situation and the trauma faced by the victims, but we urge people not to resort to violence. The law will take its course, and the guilty will be punished,” the statement read.
The incidents also highlight the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment against women in India. According to a 2020 report by the National Crime Records Bureau, there were 32,033 cases of rape reported in the country in 2019. Experts believe that the actual number of cases is much higher, as many cases go unreported.
The incidents have also renewed calls for better measures to prevent sexual assault and harassment, as well as for better support and protection for victims. Activists are urging the government to take stronger action to address the issue and to ensure that justice is served in these cases.
“These incidents are a reminder of the urgent need for better measures to prevent sexual assault and harassment and to ensure that victims are protected and supported,” said a spokesperson for a women’s rights group in the area.
The incidents have also sparked discussions about the need for self-defense training for women. Many have emphasized the importance of women being able to defend themselves in situations of danger.
“These incidents highlight the importance of women learning self-defense techniques to protect themselves against sexual assault. We need to empower women to defend themselves and to break the cycle of violence and harassment,” said a self-defense expert.
Overall, the incidents have raised important questions about the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment against women in India and the need for stronger measures to prevent and address it. They have also highlighted the importance of women being able to defend themselves in situations of danger. The Batadrava police have assured that they will take appropriate action in these cases and ensure that justice is served.
