Guwahati police shot dead Biki Ali who is the prime accused in the gang-rape of a minor girl in the Pan Bazar police station limits. The incident happened when the rapist was taken to the crime scene as part of the investigation, on Tuesday night. Ali was on the run but the police nabbed him on Monday from the Dampur hills on the outskirts of Guwahati where he was hiding.
In a bid to flee, Ali snatched the service revolver of Twinkle Goswami, the officer-in-charge of the Pan Bazar all-women police station, and fired two rounds at the police personnel. Two police officers were injured and the rape accused was killed in retaliatory action. Twinkle was injured in her leg and hand and was admitted to the hospital. Doctors confirmed that the condition of both the injured was stable.
HinduPost had earlier reported how a gang of 5 Muslim men in their early 20s had groomed, gang-raped, and uploaded the visuals of the young girl studying in 10th standard, on social media. Four others, Faizur Ali, Puna Ali, Pinku Ali, and Raja Ali are still missing and the police are searching for them.
Incidentally, the dead Ali is the same one whose mother/female relative had defended the gang-rape and committed sacrilege against the sacred Hindu epic Mahabharata. She disgustingly compared the gang rape to Draupadi’s consensual marriage to the 5 Pandava brothers, and said that “we are ready to accept the girl (marry her to Biki Ali)”.
Abhijit Sarma, Guwahati Medical College Hospital superintendent said the deceased rape accused was brought to the hospital around 1 AM by police and declared brought dead. More details will be available after the post-mortem is completed.
The national media that remained muted when the Muslim gang raped the minor were activated after Ali was shot dead for shooting at police officers. Hinduphobic media outlets like Hindustan Times have started using words like “fake encounters” and “extra-judicial killings.” Such media cheers for ‘secular’ parties like SP, RJD, TMC that are beholden to criminal and Islamist elements, stay silent when Hindus suffer like we saw in last year’s WB post-poll pogrom, but start talking about human rights and due process the moment a no-nonsense administration puts law-abiding citizens first.
