Agartala, September 30, 2019:

Tripura State Women Commission has lashed out at CPI-M for revealing the specifics of a gang-rape victim of Agartala.

A 32-year-year old woman was gang-raped by ten men on September 24 in the state capital and the following day, the Tripura wing of CPI-M issued a circular condemning the gruesome incident. The state party had mentioned the name of the victim’s husband, his occupation and the address.

Demanding immediate arrest of the culprits and justice for the victim, the women’s commission filed a case against CPI-M worker, Rakhal Majumder, who had signed the circular issued by CPI-M.
