Pinki Mali 13 a Minor girl, D/O Khapu Mali -42 at Durgahata, Gabtoli, Bogra raped brutally by one Mohammed Saheb Ali -55 years. On 7th July 2016 at around 7 pm Pinki went to collect their clothing near the house. The Perpetrator Mohammed Saheb Ali was waiting there, he told to come to his house that was adjoint. When Pinki enter into his house Mohammed Saheb locked the door and shown to her a knife and ordered with anger ‘ Open your Salowar and Kamiz” (cloth). Pinki tries to shout- suddenly, Mohammed Saheb captured her mouth with her clothing and started to open her Salower and Kamiz and bring to her into the bed and brutally raped her.

After everything, while Pinki was crying, Mohammed Saheb told with Sought Keep quiet and If you tell to anything to anyone then I will kill you including your family Members too. Frequently, Perpetrator threatens to Pinki that she should keep quiet. On 28th November 2016, Pinkis’ Physical condition has declined and her mother brings her to a doctor and doctor confirmed her pregnancy and it has matured level. When Pinki’s parents informed the perpetrator and local people the perpetrator Mohammed Saheb threaten to kill them.

On 14th December, Pinkis’ father informed to Research and Empowerment Organization–REO asking for help. Bikash Sornokar, head of REO at Bogra complained to the officer in Charge at Gabtoli Thana, Bogra and did a FIR under a section of child and women Nirjaton act 2003 on that day. Police officer ensured us that the perpetrator will arrest soon. However, on 16th February 2017, REO arranged to admit her into the Hospital at the emergency basis and on 17th February 2017, Pinki gave a boy birth.

Hi Chandan.  How is your community do something to avoid this things? What are the possible reason that this keeps happening to women? How your organization bring awareness to girls or families to protect themselves especially those who are less fortunate?

Dear

Maeann

The community is trying to ask help from law and order and situation is bleak. If anyone tortured the girl or female then society is looked that family differently- neglected. After a certain period of time, they sell their land houses and others at a cheap price and flown to area places or India. This is the main mission for the perpetrators. However, our Research and Empowerment Organization is providing training to make youth defenders those who raise their voice to protest this. We are roaming districts to districts to rescue the rape victims and we are making a shelter home for them. we have medical team those who are working to get rid of trauma and proving education and others training that they can come to the mainstream.
