We the members of Rashtriya Viklang Manch [RVM] [National Confederation of Disabled-NCD] on behalf of 70 million disabled people of India, hereby unanimously resolved to submit this memorandum to you in order to draw your attention towards the physically disabled Teenager raped in Kolkata.
The 18-year-old was admitted to the hospital on Monday on complaints of chest pain.
A teenaged deaf and dumb patient whose family complained that their daughter had been raped at the Bankura Sammilani Medical College Hospital by the hospital staff was yesterday taken to Kolkata by police and Health department doctors for forensic tests. Relatives of the girl said that the accused approached her on the pretext of a medical check-up.
A police complaint has been lodged but so far no arrests have been made.
The mother of the 18-year old girl has complained to the hospital authorities that her daughter has been raped by a junior doctor on Monday night.
Superintendent of Police Pranab Kumar said, “It is difficult for us to investigate because the victim is deaf and dumb and we need an interpreter.” He said that investigations had been taken up after receiving a complaint from the hospital authorities although no FIR was filed by the girl’s family.
Madam, this kind of statement from a police officer shows their irresponsibility towards the case of people with disabilities. Therefore We urge you to kindly take a appropriate action against this discriminatory acts.
We the members of Rashtriya Viklang Manch-RVM (National Confederation of Disabled-NCD) register our strong protest against this inhuman and brutal act and strongly urge upon the appropriate authorities to initiate stringenet action against the guilty.
Seek your solidarity,
With warm regards,
