Jaipur: In yet another story of shame, gangraped in Rajasthan, a 12-year-survivor undergoing treatment at AIIMS in Delhi has now been forced to live on the streets. This after Rajasthan Bhavan in the national capital shut its doors for her and her family.
Less than two years after she was brutally gangraped in Sikar, the 12-year-old is yet to recover. She has had 20 surgeries, but has no home to go to. She and her family were forced out of Rajasthan Bhavan where they were staying for the past 11 months even as she underwent treatment at Delhi’s AIIMS Hospital. The girl’s family says they were brought to Sikar in the middle of the night and dropped off by the roadside.
“We are being threatened, nobody is even taking care of us and not renting us a room here. They have left us on the road side,” said the rape survivor’s sister.
The family had come to Sikar from Bihar’s Darbhanga in search of work. On August 12, 2012, while she was on her way back from a movie with her sisters, she was abducted and gangraped by four men. When CNN-IBN confronted the district authorities, all they could do was give assurances.
“We will provide all help to them, if they need security we will provide that. They will be moved to a house soon,” said Haider Zaidi, SP, Sikar.
While some locals have come forward to help the family, the Rajasthan government has let them down. Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi said, “We shall talk to the Rajasthan government and see what can be done. We shall do anything it takes to give the girl justice. I’ve only heard about the story through the media.”
