Women Beat Rape Politician in Indian Village
Officials in India’s Assam state have suspended politician Bikram Singh Brahma after he was accused of raping a woman – & subsequently beaten by women in a village.
Clips posted to the web showed him being stripped of his shirt & slapped by several women in response to the allegation. Take a look at the surprising footage:
According to the BBC, Bikram Singh Brahma was detained on Thursday after the victim’s husband reported the alleged rape, which shocked his community.
Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi told the BBC his action was “condemnable” & he should be punished … though this was likely not what he had in mind.
Pressure has grown for tougher action after a woman was raped & attacked in Delhi in December & after died. Five men were arrested in that incident.
