Having talked to you hope for justice has come to me
Anti Torture Initiative, Anti Violence Initiative
Having suffered major blood loss due to delay in treatment and wandering from one place to another in pain I was unconcious completely when I reached hospital. I thought it was the last day of my life. On the one side I was afraid about my husband and my child thinking what cops might have done with my husband and when I regained senses I asked about my child and my husband. The basti people told me cops had taken my husband to Robertsganj police station. Even today it gives me chills when I remember that day of my life. I used to remain afraid every moment after that incident. I used to fear cops might come anytime and beat up me and my husband and put us in jail. Me and my family members fear for that incident. I went to Robertsganj police station but none of the cops listened to me and then I went to senior officials including the SP but could not get justice even there. Now even the neighbours have started making joke on us despite we remain afraid all the time. But having told you all this I feel relaxed as no body had ever asked me about the incident like this in details.Read more...
