Woman Kicked, Punched In Meghalaya By A Group Of Men: A woman in a green dress can be seen lying on the dusty ground, trying badly to protect herself from punches and kicks from a group of angry men who are actually torturing her. One of them holds her and beating her. Then another man punches her in the face. Not once, but thrice.
All this is seen in a video actually shot at Meghalaya’s West Garo Hills District, around 70 kilometers from the border with Bangladesh.
Throwing light on this incident, the Meghalaya police have filed a case on their own hands and taken in to bar the main culprit or the accused reportedly, the alleged person is identified as a local resident Biren Sangma.
The police said they have formed a team which is spread across the district in order to arrest the other men seen in the video. The second main accused is identified as another Martin B Sanhave, a local resident of the state.
“It is a clear case of moral policing. The woman is safe and is being counseled after she went through the ordeal,” a police officer stated.
The woman, who it seems like in her early twenties, is a native from the Garo tribal community in the north-east state. The men thrashed her because she fell in with a man who was not from her own community, people familiar with this matter anyway.
They said the video was shot two-three days ago, via the police are investigating to find out when exactly the attack on the woman occurred.
“She was assaulted by the group led by Biren Sangma, who did not like her presence in a picnic along with her other friends,” senior police officer MGR Kumar said.
A person who saw the assault said some people kept on watching the assault of women but no one come to survive. “She was thrown on the ground before she was kicked in the stomach, legs, and hands,” said the person who asked not to be identified.
West Garo Hills is the 2nd to the East Khasi Hills in the number of crime against women reported to police, the Meghalaya Police’s district-wise report on the website shown.
