ISSUES: Sexual assault, corruption; impunity; threat, right to live with dignity, Right to life with dignity, forced burning, Murder

26th December, 2014

Dear Friends,

Woke up to the news of Shama's death this morning. 20 year old Shama (name changed) was the only girl in her family who was studying and had dreams of getting a job and supporting her poor family. Shama was being molested by 3 boys since June 2014. On 18th Dec the boys entered her house and tried to rape her while her family was away. Shama put up a fight and screamed out loud. The boys then poured kerosene and burnt her. RIP Shama(name Changed), you were very brave! (From facebook wall of Smita Sharma, a photographer)  

In yet another case of the most barbaric crimes against women, a young girl was put on fire with the intention to burn her alive in  Matakund police post under Sigra police station in Varanasi district of Uttar Pradesh. The incident took place around 11 to 12 PM when the accused forcibly entered the house of Mohammed Ameen and set his daughter Shama (name changed) ablaze by sprinkling kerosene on her. The girl is battling for her life in a hospital. The crime was committed by some police informers after the parents of the girl made complaint against them. The accused police informers have been constantly making advances in the past few months trying to molest and sexually abuse the young girl.

Realising the severity of the crime, The People’s Vigilance Committee on Human Rights of Varanasi has written to the MP of Varanasi & Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Shri Akhilesh Yadav, the National Human Rights Commission, National Commission for Women, and the senior district and police officers urging them to intervene in the case and form a high-level inquiry team to initial legal action against all the accused parties. It has also demanded that the victim Shama (name changed) should be paid a compensation of Rs. 10 lakhs and be provided adequate treatment facilities and medical care. Police officials found guilty of not following the due process of law in the case should be tried under section 166 A of IPC. This heinous crime underscores the urgent need to implement police reforms and pass the Anti-Torture Bill pending in Rajya Sabha and also highlights the need to  ratify the UN Convention against Torture (UNCAT) by the government of India. A careful reading of the facts of the events reveals that rule of law is completely missing and instead it seems that informers at the service of police department are dictating the law and order in the city. Even the police actions are in violation of guidelines given by the Supreme Court of India and directions of the high police officials are not being followed.

The family of the victim has been complaining about the obscene behaviour of these police informers with their daughter since 13 June, 2014, but their voice went in vain in front of the gigantic police hierarchy. Instead of taking any action on their complaint, the police have been harassing and threatening the family. Tacit support and inaction on the part of Varanasi police emboldened the morale of the accused who finally committed the heinous crime.

The incident clearly shows that crime of sexual abuse of a young girl was being done with the support of Matakund Police post. This is not an isolated incident in the area. In yet another case in Lahanga Khurd Lallapur locality under the Sigra police station, a 10 year old minor boy  Babloo ( name changed) working with a sari cloth merchant Mr. Salauddin was confined in a house for 7 hours and badly beaten and tortured by the said merchant by falsely accusing him of stealing Rs. 20 lakhs.  This incident occurred on 31 August 2014 and Mr. Hamid (Babu Lal), father of the minor boy sent his written complaint by registered post to the local police station including the higher police officials. On the contrary the Singra police station filed an FIR against the minor boy and his parents on the complaint by the sari merchant Salauddin. In the said incident immediate action should have been taken by the police against Mr. Salauddin under the Child labour Prohibition Act and Juvenile Justice Act for forcing a minor boy into child labour and torturing him physically. Similarly in the case of burning of the young girl, the police department instead of following the due course of law seems giving full protection to the violators of law.

All the accused in the young girl case were working as police informers for Matakund police post and they were serving as cooks and washer men for the police officials of Matakund police post. The victim and her family had already given their complaint many times against the immoral conducts of the informers in Matakund police post, Lallapura and Singra police station. The aggrieved family never got any help from the police and the victim, Shama(name Changed) unable to put up the behaviour of informers got frustrated and was finally forced to discontinue her studies in between. Shama stopped coming out of her home due the constant fear of sexual harassment. Whenever she dared to came out of her house to buy household items or to attend the sewing classes, she continuously faced sexual harassment by the police informers. Her parents repeatedly complained to the police about this.

The aggrieved family approached the office of People’s Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR), Varanasi on December 8, 2014 and complained about the police negligence and inaction in their matter. They also narrated their painful story. People’s Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR) took their case and informed Senior Superintendent of Police, Varanasi, DGP, Uttar Pradesh and Chief Minister, Uttar Pradesh through a registered post and registered a complaint about the police negligence in the matter. On the advice of PVCHR in December 11, 2014 the aggrieved family filed a written complaint in the office of I G Varanasi zone about the atrocities and torture being meted out to them. The PRO of IG, Varanasi zone called up the Sigra police station and directed the police officials there to take this case seriously. It is necessary to mention here that Singra police station in charge was also responsible to look after the daily affairs of Matakund police post so negligence on the part of police here was inevitable. After this the victim Shama along with her parents gave a written complaint to the IG, Varansi zone on 12 December, 2014 and on their complaint IG, Varanasi zone gave the responsibility to SSP Varanasi to investigate the whole matter. Despite all this, Sigra police station and Matakund police post officials neither registered a police FIR against three accused namely Babudan, Gabbu and Pappu nor did they take any legal action against them. The accused police informers were not happy with the victim’s family for filing a complaint against them. With the tacit support of the police and police inaction in the case further boosted the confidence of the accused informers. As a consequence they decided to forcibly enter the house of Mohammed Ameen at around 11 to 12 PM and set the victim Shama ablaze by sprinkling kerosene on her.

It is a tragic irony that on the one hand India has been honoured with Noble peace prize for protection the rights of child and women but on the other one also witnesses the grave injustice and insensitivity as shown by the police officials in Matakund police post in this case that not only boosted the morale of criminals but also tacitly supported them to commit such a heinous crime in an organised fashion. As a result the young victim today is fighting the battle of her life in the hope of getting justice for her and her family and similarly the minor boy is still bearing the scars of police torture.

Need to fight against anti-woman attitude,culture of silence and sexual assault : Shruti Nagvanshi

It is very sad that today morning around 7 am brave heart lady Shama(name changed) died in Kabir Chaura hospital of Varanasi, India. Yesterday Pandit  Deen Dayal regional hospital donated one unit of blood to her on the request of PVCHR activist and her brother. Her soul may rest in peace.

In yet another case of the most barbaric crimes against women, a young girl was put on fire with the intention to burn her alive in  Matakund police post under Sigra police station in Varanasi district of Uttar Pradesh.

वाराणसी, उत्तर प्रदेश के वाराणसी जिले के सिगरा थाना माताकुण्ड पुलिस चौकी अंतर्गत पुलिस के मुखबिरों द्वारा युवती से लगातार छेड़छाड़ की घटना में युवती एवं उसके परिवार के द्वारा शिकायत और विरोध किये जाने पर उसे जिन्दा जला दिया गया |
         इस सन्दर्भ में मानवाधिकार जननिगरानी समिति द्वारा पत्र लिखकर वाराणसी के सांसद और प्रधानमन्त्री माननीय श्री. नरेन्द्र मोदी जी, मुख्यमंत्री श्री. अखिलेश यादव, राष्ट्रीय मानव अधिकार आयोग, राष्ट्रीय महिला आयोग, एवं जिले व प्रदेश के वरिष्ठ पुलिस अधिकारीयों से अपील की गयी है वे मामले में हस्तक्षेप करते हुए उच्च स्तरीय जांच कराते हुए दोषी सभी पक्षों के विरुध वैधानिक कार्यवाही किये जाने की पहल करावें | पीडिता शमा (बदला हुआ नाम) को 10 लाख रूपये मुआवजा (आर्थिक सहायता) दिया जाए | पीडिता के ईलाज और विशेष देखभाल की समुचित व्यवस्था की जाय | इस मामले में क़ानूनी पक्ष की लगातार अनदेखी और देर करने वाले दोषी पुलिस अधिकारीयों के विरुध 166 A अधीन वैधानिक कार्यवाही की जाय | यह घटना पुलिस सुधार को तुरन्त लागू करने एवं राज्य सभा में लम्बित यातना विरोधी बिल को तुरन्त पारित करने के साथ संयुक्तराष्ट्र संघ यातना विरोधी कन्वेंशन (UNCAT) को अनुमोदित करने की आवश्यकता को रेखांकित करती है | विदित हो कि यदि सम्पूर्ण तथ्यों और घटना क्रम को देखा जाय तो यह कानून राज के स्थान पर पुलिस के लिए काम करने वाले मुखबिरों का राज दिखाई पड़ता है और पुलिस द्वारा माननीय सर्वोच्च न्यायालय की गाइड लाईन को ताक पर रखकर कार्यवाही की जा रही है | जंहा पुलिस विभाग के उच्च अधिकारीयों के निर्देशों का भी पालन नही किया जाता है |
 इस घटना में पीडिता का परिवार लगातार अपनी बिटिया को पुलिस के इन मुखबिरों द्वारा अभद्र अश्लील और छेड़छाड़ की शिकायत विगत 13 जून 2014 से पुलिस के उच्च अधिकारीयों से करता रहा लेकिन पुलिस की इस व्यवस्था में उनकी एक नही सुनी गयी | बल्कि हर बार पुलिस से उनके खिलाफ की गयी शिकायत के सन्दर्भ उन्हें सहज तरीके से जानकारी हो जाने पर वे और भी बुरा व्यवहार करते रहे और लगातार धमकी देते रहे की उनका कोई कुछ नही बिगाड़ सकता है | पुलिस के द्वारा कोई कार्यवाही नही किये और संरक्षण दिए जाने से उनका मनोबल बढ़ता रहा |
         सीधे तौर पर माताकुण्ड चौकी के संरक्षण और शह पर एक युवती के साथ यौन हिंसा की घटना होती रही | यह कोई एक मात्र घटना नही है बल्कि  सिगरा थाना अंतर्गत लहँगपूरा खुर्द लल्लापुरा में साड़ी व्यवसायी सलाउद्दीन के द्वारा अपने यंहा काम करने वाले 10 वर्षीय नाबालिग बालक बबलू (बदला हुआ नाम) पर 20 लाख रूपये चोरी का आरोप लगाकर 7 घंटे तक अपने घर में बंद करके बुरी तरह पिटाई और यातनाएं दी गयी | 31 अगस्त 2014 की इस घटना की शिकायत बच्चे के पिता हमीद उर्फ़ बाबूलाल द्वारा 1 सितम्बर 2014 को थाने सहित उच्च अधिकारीयों से लिखित रूप में पंजीकृत डाक से की गयी | लेकिन 9 सितम्बर 2014 को सिगरा थाना में मालिक सलाउद्दीन द्वारा की गयी चोरी की शिकायत पर नाबालिग बच्चे व् उसके माता पिता के विरुध FIR दर्ज कर दिया गया | जबकि इस प्रकरण में मालिक द्वारा नाबालिग बच्चे से बालश्रम कराने, उसकी पिटाई और यातना दिए जाने के मामले का पुलिस के संज्ञान में आने पर अबिलम्ब बालश्रम व किशोर न्याय अधिनियम के अधीन मालिक के विरुध कार्यवाही की जानी चाहिए | युवती को जलाए जाने की घटना में भी यदि पुलिस विभाग कानून के राज के अधीन न काम करके उल्टे कानून का हनन करने वालो को संरक्षण और शह देता रहा |
उक्त सभी माताकुण्ड पुलिस चौकी के मुखबिर के रूप में काम करते थे और साथ ही माताकुण्ड चौकी के पुलिस अधिकारीयों और पुलिसकर्मीयों की सेवा टहल यथा खाना पकाना कपड़े धोने जैसे काम किया करते थे | उनके हरकत की शिकायत पीडिता एवं उसके माता-पिता द्वारा पुलिसचौकी माताकुण्ड लल्लापुरा एवं थाना सिगरा पर कई बार किया गया था | लेकिन पीड़ित परिवार कोई मदद नही मिली अंत में पुलिस मुखबिरों (शोहदों) के हरकतों से आजिज आकर सबीना को अपनी पढाई बीच में ही छोडनी पड़ी | इज्जत बचाने के डर से शमा घर से बाहर नही निकलती थी, शमा जब भी किसी काम से घर के बाहर निकलती तो ये शोहदे उसे परेशान करते रहते | यहाँ तक कि जब घर के लिए कोई सामान लेने या सिलाई सीखने जाती तो भी शोहदों उसे लगातार परेशान करते रहते जिसकी शिकायत माता-पिता द्वारा कई बार पुलिस से की गयी थी |
   
    पीड़ित परिवार 8 दिसम्बर 2014 को मानवाधिकार जननिगरानी समिति (PVCHR) के कार्यालय में आकर अपनी व्यथा और पुलिस की लापरवाही के सन्दर्भ में शिकायत किया, जिसके बाद उसी दिन समिति द्वारा भी वरिष्ठ पुलिस अधीक्षक वाराणसी, पुलिस महानिदेशक उत्तर प्रदेश शासन, मुख्यमंत्री उत्तर प्रदेश शासन को पंजीकृत डाक द्वारा मामले में  की लापरवाही की शिकायत दर्ज करते हुए घटना से अवगत कराया | समिति के सुझाव पर 11 दिसम्बर 2014 को पीडिता परिवार सहित आई० जी० जोन वाराणसी के कार्यालय में अपने साथ हो रहे छेड़छाड़ की घटना और उत्पीडन की लिखित शिकायत की जिस पर आई० जी० जोन वाराणसी के PRO (पब्लिक रिलेशन ऑफिसर) द्वारा सिगरा थाना में फोन पर इस घटना के सन्दर्भ में बातचीत कर गम्भीरता से लेने को कहा गया | विदित हो कि इस समय माताकुण्ड चौकी इंचार्ज पर ही थाना सिगरा का कार्यभार था अत: फिर मामले में अनदेखी तो किया जाना तय था | पुनः पीडिता सबीना अपने माता-पिता सहित 12 दिसम्बर 2014 को आई० जी० जोन वाराणसी कार्यालय में जन शिकायत द्वारा लिखित शिकायत किया जिस पर  आई० जी० जोन वाराणसी द्वारा मामले की जाँच एस०एस०पी० वाराणसी को सौंपा | लेकिन इसके बावजूद सिगरा थाना व माताकुण्ड चौकी द्वारा उक्त तीनों शोहदों (पुलिस मुखबिर) बाबूदान, गब्बू एवं पप्पू के खिलाफ़ नही FIR दर्ज किया गया और नही उनके खिलाफ़  कोई कार्यवाही की गयी | पुलिस की शह पर उक्त तीनों हौसला बुलंद मुखबिर जो कि पीड़ित परिवार द्वारा अपने खिलाफ शिकायत किये जाने से नाराज थे वे 19 दिसम्बर 2014 को दिन में लगभग 11-12 बजे के बीच मोहम्मद अमीन के घर में घुसकर पीडिता सबीना पर मिट्टी का तेल छिड़क आग लगा दिया गया |
दुनिया में महिलाओ और भारत में बच्चो के अधिकारों के संरक्षण लिए एक तरफ तो नोबेल पीस प्राईस से सम्मानित होने का गौरव प्राप्त हुआ तो वही माताकुण्ड चौकी द्वारा ना केवल लापरवाही बल्कि इस मामले को सम्वेदनशीलता और गम्भीरता से नही लिए जाने के कारण आरोपियों का मनोबल बढ़ा और वे संगठित रूप से बड़ी घटना को अंजाम दे बैठे परिणामत: वह युवती न्याय मिलने की उम्मीद में आज जीवन मृत्यु के बीच संघर्ष कर रही है और वह नाबालिग बच्चा पुलिस की यातनाये झेल रहा है | इस प्रेस वार्ता में पीडिता के पिता मो0 अमीन उर्फ़ बाबा और पीड़ित नाबालिग बच्चे के पिता मो0 हमीद सहित अनूप श्रीवास्तव, डॉ0 राजीव सिंह, छाया कुमारी, इरशाद अहमद भी उपस्थित रहे |

Link of masculinity with corrupt part of police and culture of silence with impunity

On 18th December, 2014 three people (Babudan, Pappu and Gappu) burnt 20 years old Shama (name changed) by lighting fire and throwing kerosene in her own house C15/50K-2, Mata Kund, Lallapura under Sigra jurisdiction of Varanasi district of Uttar Pradesh. Shama is more than 70 % burnt and now under treatment in Shiv Prasad Gupta (district hospita), Kabir Chaura Varanasi. The medical legal report (MLC) shows Derino- epiderma burn involving whole body except head, front of chest and middle part of back and both foot. It also identifies smell of kerosene.

This incidence does not execute in a day but Shama was every - day faced molestation from 13th June, 2014 onwards. She studied in Rajkiya Balika Inter College (Government Intermediate College). When I go to school these three people (Babu, Pappu and Gappu) tease me and molest me and give threat. Every day I inform to my mother about the incidence. One day my mother took me to Sigra police station but our woe was not heard. We return backed and I was nervous.

We complaint to District Magistrate, Senior Superintendent of Police and S.P but did not received any action from the concerned authorities. So, I left my study and involved myself in learning stitching clothes. Here also I was followed by these people. They snatch my dupatta and I started to scream to save my dignity. They throw Gamcha (cotton clothes) and I fainted and fall in the ground. They torn my clothes. Anyhow I save my dignity and ran away to my house. I informed to my parents and they took me Sigra police station where I informed all woes. Instead of lodging FIR against the perpetrator the Sigra police station filed FIR against me, my parent (Mohd. Amin and Kuraisa).
On 8th December, 2014 Shama parents came to PVCHR and immediately after taking statement letter was sent to Director General of Police, Senior Superintendent of Police, Varanasi, National Human Rights Commission, Chief Minister, Government of Uttar Pradesh and National Human Rights Commission.

The statement of Shama parents clarifies that Babudeen s/o Umar Misti, Gabbu s/o Umar Misti and Pappu s/o Bachau, Kaluwa are the informant of the police. They live 24 hours in police station washing the clothes and cooking food for cops. These people many times entered in the house of Shama and demanded for the ransom. Several times they complaint but they were not heard due to their influence.

Shama Mother (Kuraisa) said “On 9th December, 2014 around 9 pm in the night these people entered in my house taking the name of my daughter. When I refused then they started to sexual abuse my child and started to throw stone in my house. They threat if I will not allow my daughter to go along with them then they will burn her face by throwing acid. On 11thDecember, 2014 to Inspector General of Police (IG) and 12th December, 2014 I sent letter toInspector General of Police (IG), Varanasi zone and station Officer, Sigra.

On basis of the news published in various newspaper on 20th December, 2013 PVCHR intervened to National Human Rights Commission, New Delhi, National Commission for Minorities, New Delhi, National Women Commission , Prime Minister, Government of India, Chief Minister, Government of Uttar Pradesh and Director General of Police (DGP). On same day these perpetrator were arrested after FIR lodged by the police.

In 2009 Sigra police arrested Shama brother along with two people. Police claimed the seizers of six mother bike and two guns. Police also claimed that her brother fired bullet on them. But police was unable to prove all this in court and his brother was released with respect. Shama brother released after spending six month in Jail. Again next day he was arrested with charges of gangster. His brother released on bail on gangster and implicated with Gunda Act. From 2009 till now police imposed nine cases on Shama brother.

It is a clear case of link of masculinity with corrupt part of police and culture of silence with impunity.

Summary of Project:
Integrated Approach to Technology in Education (ITE) in 20 Madarsa as a Model in Varanasi and Jaunpur Madarsa students specially to girls.Improve Learning Processes and Pedagogy: The technology as an information processing tool takes away the traditional information giving role of the teacher. This basic functionality of technology by default requires the teachers to take a facilitative than an informative role. The ITE approach requires the teachers to play a central role.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
India's secular character provides the freedom to all citizens to choose their own religion, a right provided in t of the Constitution of India. It also ensures that the state cannot discriminate on the basis of religion. However, in reality, things are different. The marginalization of the Muslim community the largest among the minority groups is complete. This has been corroborated by the Prime Minister's High-Level Committees on Minorities in 2006, headed by Justice Rajinder Sachhar.

How will this project solve this problem?
Bridge the digital divide and foster digital citizenship of Muslim Minority Create learning interest, attendance and retention Learning achievement Improve learning processes and pedagogy.

Potential Long Term Impact
ITE will create an interest in the subject matter as given in the school text books. This genuine interest in learning and the opportunity to create something of their own, using computers, cameras, and phones will attract the learner to knowledge creating resources. Also, this will, in itself make school relevant and connected with the learning centres. Bridging the digital divide entails proficiency in technical skills ensuring a better future for the children and adolescents.
