LAMKA, October 18: The Churachandpur District Joint Women Organisation has come down heavily on the concerned authority over its silence on an alleged rape incident of a minor girl from Lamka town.
Briefing the media today at its office in Venguam, chairperson Somi expressed concern over increasing crime against women, and more particularly against minors. She said that such incident was unheard in Lamka, but now it seems to be the order of the day.
In the briefing, she strongly questioned the response of the government and its police, who are still not able to arrest the culprit. According to her, the incident occurred on October 7. The minor girl was playing with her siblings, and she was apparently lured away by the culprit to a place near Khuga Dam.
She continued that the girl was later abandoned somewhere at Konpui village. Even after 10 days of the incident, the culprit is still at large with the police doing nothing, she alleged.
