New Delhi, Thu, 23 Jan 2014 ANI

New Delhi, Jan.23 (ANI): Women politicos on Thursday condemned the alleged gang-rape of a tribal woman in West Bengal's Birbhum district, and appealed to the state chief minister to take stern action against the culprits.

President of Women Congress Shobha Oza said that if such brutal acts are not restricted, women will never feel safe in this country.

"It is very unfortunate that such incidents happen at the behest of Khap Panchayat in West Bengal. The CM should act immediately and take action against all the culprits. Such incidents should not take place. Women will never feel safe otherwise in this country," she said.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Najma Heptulla, echoing similar sentiments, said that India's image is deteriorating due to incidents like these that happen not only with Indian women but also with foreign nationals.

"It is very unfortunate that such incidents are happening. And the culprits should be given maximum punishment as per law. I am sure that the West Bengal Chief Minister would definitely take action in this matter. The concerned state officials and the police must look into these matters seriously," she said.

A 20 year old tribal woman was allegedly gang-raped on Monday night on the order of the village court presided by village head, who decided to punish the girl for having an affair with a boy from a different community.

She was admitted to the Lavpur primary health centre but was later transferred to Siuri hospital.

The parents of the victim filed a complaint with the Lavpur police station, and so far five people have been arrested. (ANI)
