Panchayat’s diktat to 11 Year old Sexual Assault Victim: Don’t lodge FIR, wait for 8 years & marry Accused

Panchayat on Rape Victim

In Bihar, a panchayat has ordered an 11 year old rape victim to not to file a complaint with the police & instead asked her to wait till she is 18 years old as the accused has confessed his crime & will marry her, police said on Friday.

A village panchayat in Purnea district under the Baisi Police Station ordered the rape victim to not lodge an FIR against the accused.

Unhappy with the village panchayat’s decision, the rape victim’s family informed District Superintendent of Police Nishant Tiwari on Thursday during his Janata Darbar & sought his intervention.

Nishant Tiwary assured the rape victim’s maternal uncle & grandmother of justice & action against the accused. According to police, Mani Kumar Bosak, the accused raped the girl, a student of Class VI, when she was alone in her house.

This isn’t the 1st time that a Bihar’s village panchayat has given such a diktat to a rape victim.

Earlier in 2014, a panchayat in Muzaffarpur had asked a 13 year old rape victim to take the amount fixed by it & undergo abortion to resolve the issue even though she wanted justice.

She was 7-month pregnant & was offered ₹50,000 to abort a pregnancy caused by rape & move on with her life.

In another incident in 2015, a panchayat in Bihar, had ordered 1 of its members accused of raping a Mahadalit woman to pay her ₹41,000 & asked the victim to not to report this incident to the Police.
