Shame Mumbai : Buddhist Girl Paraded Naked in Wadala
Cases of attacks on Buddhist women aren’t confined to rural India: last month, a young Buddhist girl was stripped and paraded in a southern Mumbai locality. The local police has arrested 10 women and two men under Prevention Of Atrocities (POA) Act. However, Sharada Yadav, the main accused, is out on bail.
Said senior police inspector Rajendra Bhogale: “All the suspects named by the victim, including Sharada Yadav, were arrested in the case. We charged them under the Prevention of Atrocities Act. But Sharda Yadav was granted bail by the court(???).” The 22-year-old Buddhist girl, who was stripped and dragged out of her house at Darukhana, Reay Road, by a mob of mostly women, said: “They all shouted that dalits like me should not live in this area. They kept hurling abuses on me, beat me some people with their Mobile phones took pictures and videos of the scene.”
The local Shivsena corporator Sharada Yadav collided with Jaya Sawnt and Mumtaj Sheikh to design the gory punishment for the Kamble family. This was partly due to old feud between the Selfmade Rama Jadhav and the politico-criminal trio. Ramabai refused to part with 300-400 Rs/month extortion to the trio. The trio is worst known for their Caste Attitudes. How they did it first by alleging Mita’s brother for a rape of minor and who worked as watchman at the ship-breaking yard, on June 16. Later they forced Vijay Kamble (34) get arrested by the Sewri police despite the fact that he has not committed any crime of any nature whereas Sharada Yadav got the bail for her crimes. The they beat the entire family till the point they got the young educated girl of the family in hand. they humiliated her with tearing her cloths exposing her and beating the parts of body with sticks just what happened in Khailanji. The uppercaste youth took sadistic pleasures after Sharada’s verdict that the girl is open for rape, be in que. This is the true horror Caste India.
“While stripping me, Sharada Yadav and another woman kept shouting that I would have to pay for my brother’s crime which he never committed,” said Girl. Rajendra Bhogale the Senior PI of the zone has unilaterally declared Vijay as criminal even before the medical report and has given Character certificate to Sharada Yadav.
