Radha Rani Halder
Radha Rani Halder, wanita Hindu yg pengantin baru dari Shariatpur District di Bangladesh, diperkosa ramai2 dan dibunuh oleh sekelompok Muslim tgl June 27, 2009.
Ms. Halder worked for the local NGO, the Shariatpur Development Society (SDS).
Mr. Dipankar Bairagee, husband of the slain woman, said that, at about 11 a.m. on June 27, Ms. Halder went for loan collection, as part of her work with the NGO, to the house of local village leader, Mr. Halim Matubbar, in South Goaldia village.
But when she did not return until afternoon, her co-workers started searching for her as she didn’t return on time to the office with the money, and that her mobile was not responding, said Mr. Quamrul Hasan(Badal), the Sector Chief of SDS.
“Finally after frantic search until on late at night, we discovered the unclothed dead-body of Ms. Halder with her throat half-slit near Hajeer Pukur of Palong Upazila in Shariatpur”, said Sector Chief Hasan.
Mr. Bairagee, the devastated husband of the deceased, said, “We got married about 2 months ago. She took up the job to relieve the family of its hardships, but got killed in this brutal way”.
“We have filed a case with the police, but they failed to arrest any of the perpetrators”, said he.
“Local Muslim Mohammed Kalam, Borhan and Motaleb
killed my wife after raping her; and they also snatched an amount of Tk 43,996.00, as well as a golden chain and earring from my wife”, added Mr. Bairagee.
Shariatpur police chief said, “The case is under investigation; we are doing our best; and we have arrested one of the suspect”.
Annie Halder, a Catholic human rights activist, expressed anxiety over growing attacks on the minorities in Bangladesh.
“We demand proper investigation of this case and due justice to theperpetrators”, said she.
