Nun discharged, leaves for undisclosed destination

Nun discharged, leaves for undisclosed destination
Ranaghat sub-disional hospital superintendent AN Mondal said the nun was taken to the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata, 64 km away, from where she left for an undisclosed destination.

She was discharged around 2.20 am and left 25 minutes later with the convent authorities after collecting her belongings.

A doctor from the hospital Tapas Mullick accompanied the nun to the airport and she was given medicine for 10 days, said Mondal.

Mondal said she was advised to consult a gynaecologist and a psychiatrist after the 10 days.

The medical board constituted by the hospital to treat the nun had on Thursday conducted tests and found her physically and mentally fit, said Mondal. The convent authorities could not be contacted.

Meanwhile, the Convent of Jesus and Mary School at Gangnapur, where the nun was the Sister Superior, functioned as normal.

No arrest have been made even six days after the incident, though 17 people have been detained, the police said. On Friday, two Bangladeshi nationals were detained on suspicion of their involvement in the case, the police said The police pickeed up the two, both residents of Bangladesh’s Thakurganj district, from Bhatol village in the Raiganj police station area, the SP said, adding CID officers were interrogating them.

The West Bengal government had on March 18 decided to hand over the case to CBI as the demand for justice grew louder with the culprits at large. But the investigation agency is yet to formally take charge of the case.

Archbishop of Kolkata Thomas D’Souza, who had visited the spot following the incident, said the nun must have left to take rest.

“I have not spoken to her after that so I don’t know why she left. But I think she needs rest after the trauma,” he said.

In the meantime, Herod Mullick, state working president of the Bangiya Christiya Pariseba, on Friday sent a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, appealing for a free and fair CBI enquiry into the incident.

Demanding quick action, he said that the case appears to be a “calculated religious attack” executed in the guise of a regular robbery.

SC to hear case after filing of petition

The apex court has refrained from taking suo motu cognizance in the gang-rape case of 71-year-old nun of West Bengal but gave liberty to a woman advocate to file a petition for hearing the matter.

“You file a writ petition and we will see,” said a bench headed by Chief Justice HL Dattu when advocate Lilly Thomas mentioned the matter, asking the court to consider taking it suo motu. The bench said the matter will be taken up for consideration after filing of the petition. The nun was gang-raped at a convent in Nadia.
