Meghalaya BJP Mahila Morcha Urges High Court's Urgent Intervention in Tribal Minors' Gang Rape Case
Ensuring Justice: BJP Women's Wing Seeks High Court's Suo Moto Action in Shocking Tribal Minors' Assault Case
In a move to ensure swift justice and accountability, the Meghalaya BJP Mahila Morcha has appealed to the Meghalaya High Court to take suo moto cognizance of the horrific gang rape of two tribal minor girls in South West Garo Hills on April 17, 2024. The organization has also requested the court to demand a comprehensive report from the local Police Department regarding the incident.

The shocking case has sparked outrage and concern among various sectors of society, prompting the Mahila Morcha to take a proactive stance and urge the judiciary to intervene in the matter without delay.

In a letter addressed to the Chief Justice of the Meghalaya High Court, the state unit of the BJP Mahila Morcha expressed its profound distress over the incident, stating, "Two tribal, minor girls were gang raped in South West Garo Hills on the 17th of April 2024. We humbly urge your honour to take suo moto action against the culprits and ask for a report from our Police Department."

The letter underscores the organization's unwavering faith in the judicial system and its confidence that the esteemed court's intervention will expedite the resolution of this case. "Your honour, we have full faith in you and the judiciary, and we are confident that with your intervention, this case will be solved at the earliest," the letter states.

The call for suo moto action by the Meghalaya High Court is a significant step towards ensuring that the perpetrators of this heinous crime are brought to justice swiftly and that the victims and their families receive the necessary support and protection.

The gang rape of minors, particularly from vulnerable tribal communities, has once again highlighted the urgent need for robust mechanisms to safeguard the rights and safety of children, especially those from marginalized sections of society.

As the legal process unfolds, the Meghalaya BJP Mahila Morcha's appeal has underscored the collective responsibility of all stakeholders, including the judiciary, law enforcement agencies, and civil society organizations, to work in tandem to address such cases with utmost urgency and sensitivity.
