Mother of the college girl, who was raped and murdered in Kamduni two-and-a-half years ago, praised the efforts of state government for bringing them justice.
She said, “I am happy that the state government has supported us to get justice. I will not get my daughter back. But I expect that the verdict will make a person think twice before committing such a heinous crime. Me and my family members had faced many bad experiences in the past two-and-a-half years. Representatives of the state government had approached us and supported in our fight. Today it seems that our fight has really turned fruitful.”
The victim’s mother on Sunday once again found crying with a photograph of the victim in her hand and kept saying that the accused those killed her daughter should been sentenced to death.
While the victim’s brother on Sunday said it was a new dawn for Kamduni. Moreover, he appreciated the state government’s decision to move the Calcutta High Court as two of the eight accused — Rafiqul Islam Gazi and Noor Ali — were acquitted.
He said the people those were involved in the incident should not get an opportunity to enter the village. They duo should also be punished as they were well aware about the incident.
Some villagers too claimed that the duo, who was acquitted, may once again create trouble in the village. It may be mentioned that one of the accused had threatened the victim’s brother outside the court room on Thursday.
“We know that the police will take necessary steps to avoid any untoward incident in Kamduni and steps have already been taken for the protection of witnesses. But they may create trouble in the absence of police. So we expect a permanent police camp at the village,” said the victim’s brother.
“We are happy knowing that the Additional District and Sessions Judge Sanchita Sarkar had mentioned in her judgement that the accused had committed the crime to terrorise the people of the village and treated it as a rarest of the rarest incident. There was no personal grudge behind the crime. The decision to give maximum punishment to the convict was taken to check repetition of such incidents. Now we are hopeful that the district administration will also take necessary steps so that no one can terrorise the villagers,” the victim’s brother said adding that now they are waiting when the convicts will be punished.
