5 women activists gang-raped in Jharkhand, case registered

According to police the five women had gone to the village to stage a street play against human trafficking

Five women, who were part of an anti-human trafficking group, were allegedly gang-raped by a group of bike-borne men in Jharkhand, reports said on Friday. "Many of them are from remote villages, which is why these awareness programs are so important and the incident is shocking".

The women said they abducted while putting on a play about human trafficking in the largely tribal Khunti district of Jharkhand state, AFP reports. We are trying to identify the criminals.

The FIR accuses Fr Alfanso Aien of the RC Mission School for not reporting/informing the police about women's abduction and subsequent rape, said Khunti SP Ashwini Sinha. Medical examination has confirmed rape and a case has been filed.

Police officer Rajesh Prasad added that the women were working for Asha Kiran, an NGO supported by Christian missionaries. Police sources said that troupes like the one that was targeted are being used by some local officials in an attempt to turn locals against Pathalgadi, an anti-establishment self-rule movement popular in several tribal villages.

"They put them in the same vehicle by which the Asha Kiran group were travelling and drove some kilometres away from the place".

Jharkhand has especially been in the spotlight after three teenagers were raped and burnt alive in separate incidents last month.

The suspect's whereabouts are unknown.

A police spokesperson said: "They do not believe in the state government". The individuals were attacked because they were outsiders. The organisation, then, lodged complaint with higher authorities, which is when the police swung into action. The matter was reported to the police after a social worker, contacted by a social worker, informed the police.

Thousands of people took to the streets across the country in late April, in some of the largest demonstrations seen in India since the highly publicized rape and murder of a female college student in Delhi in 2012.
