Target: Head of Swang Gulgulia Dhoura’s Village Council, Vinod Vishwakarma
Goal: Demand justice for a teenage girl who was raped as punishment for her older brother’s crime
A man in India recently snuck into the hut of a woman and groped her. As punishment to the man, the government ordered that the perpetrator’s 13-year-old sister be raped. Justice must be acquired for this horrific incident as well as assurance that something like this does not happen again.
The daughter of the Swang Gulgulia Dhoura village’s headman, Suguna Devi, was victimized by a man who went into her hut uninvited and groped her. As a punishment, the village headman, Ghosal Pasi, ordered the rape of the man’s 13-year-old sister, which was carried out by the original victim Saguna Devi’s husband, Nakabandi Pasi. The young girl’s family watched in horror as she was dragged away from her home, but there was nothing they could do to stop the horrific punishment.
Swang Gulgulia Dhoura headman Ghosal Pasi, and his son-in-law, Nakabandi Pasi are both being held in custody because of the brutal attack. Unfortunately, this is not the first attack of this kind to take place in Indian villages, but we need assurance that it will be the last. Ghosal Pasi should be immediately removed from his position as headman and replaced by a more fair and moral individual.
Please sign the petition below to ensure justice for the innocent young girl who was violently raped as punishment her brother’s crime and to prevent similar events in the future.
Dear Vinod Vishwakarma,
As you are aware, there was recently a brutal rape in the village of Swang Gulgulia Dhoura. The daughter of the village’s headman, Suguna Devi, was victimized by a man who crept into her hut and groped her. As punishment, the village headman, Ghosal Pasi, ordered the rape of the man’s 13-year-old sister, which was carried out by Saguna Devi’s husband, Nakabandi Pasi. This was a terrible situation carried out because of political privilege and revenge.
I understand that headman Ghosal Pasi, and his son-in-law, Nakabandi Pasi are both being held in custody, but their actions require further punishment. Please ensure that such a brutal, unwarranted sexual assault never occurs again by properly punishing the men responsible and permanently removing Ghosal Pasi from his position as headman. The village of Swang Gulgulia Dhoura should be run by an individual who is moral and even-tempered.
Thank you for your efforts in this situation.
