Karbi Anglong, 30 January, 24: In a devastating incident that has sent shockwaves through the community of Borpung under the Nilip Constituency, a 12- year-old girl, Lt. Rosemi Terangpi, was brutally raped and murdered. The young girl, residing in Dolamara for educational purposes, had returned home for Christmas and New Year celebrations but met with a horrifying fate during her journey back to Dolamara.

On January 26, 2024, Rosemi was traveling on a bike with a man, presumably known to her, from Borpung to Dolamara via Tarapung. The sinister incident occurred in the dense forest between Tarapung and Dolamara. Following an extensive five-day search operation conducted by the local communities of Dolamara and Tarapung, Rosemi's lifeless body was tragically discovered in the vicinity of Ruipi Langso waterfall in Dolamara.

The community is grappling with profound grief, and the horrifying nature of this crime has left everyone in shock. Rosemi's soul, taken away in such a brutal manner, has left an indelible scar on the hearts of those who knew her.

After an intensive five-day search conducted by family members and concerned relatives, the lifeless body of the minor was finally located near the Ruipi Langso waterfall in Dolamara on the evening of January 30. Dolamara police promptly took custody of both the suspect, Dilip Rongphar, and the victim's remains.
The hashtag #JusticeForRosemi is now circulating on social media as the community demands swift and stringent legal action against the perpetrator. The incident not only highlights the immediate need for justice for Rosemi but also underscores the broader issue of safety, especially for young girls in such community.

As Borpung mourns the loss of innocence, the call for justice resonates not just within the community but reverberates across society. It is a stark reminder of the urgent need to address the safety and well-being of young individuals, ensuring that such heinous crimes are met with the full force of the law.
