Rape Victim's Painful Suicide Note
A rape victim, who lost hopes from the judicial system, wrote a heart-wrenching suicide note. "If I die, nobody will call me a prostitute anymore,' read her note.
The 21-year-old woman was a Bsc student, from Bhilai, was found dead when the cops arrived at her residence to issue court summons for the next hearing in the case.
The letter found by cops in a notebook was written in Hindi. The victim mentioned that the judge is never present when she is called for hearing of the case, which was on trial since a year.
The woman was allegedly assaulted by a doctor and two cops in June 2014. Fearing about the honour of the family, the woman did not voice out and continued to go through the ordeal.
"The doctor, Gautam Pandit, told her she had jaundice and kept her at the hospital for three days. He drugged her, and with constables Saurabh Bhakta and Chandra Prakash Pandey, raped her. Then for over six months, they threatened her, saying they had made a video, and even took money from her on two occasions," says her brother.
In January 2015, the woman finally voiced out and revealed the three names. The trio was then arrested the very next day. The victim's brother revealed that after the incident came to light, people began blaming her and calling her with unpleasant names.
The suicide note revealed that the woman was given only little hope of justice by her lawyer, Kalpana Deshmukh. Seeking forgiveness from parents, she ended her note.
