The Shasastra Sheema Bal (SSB)- India’s armed border security force deployed along the border with Nepal, has once again grabbed media headlines in Nepal.
The SSB which is synonymous to ‘India’s Killing Machine’ mainly deployed to terrorize poor Nepali citizens living along the border has been grabbing headlines for regularly thrashing, raping, looting and also sending trained dogs to grab domesticated animals from the Nepali territory.
Even the Indian dogs challenge Nepali Prime Minister. So pathetic.
However, the ghastly incident that took place in the district of Taplejung, April 25, 2012, will be remembered by the Nepali citizens for long time to come.
Understandably, the event has at least become an eighth page stuff for some big media and some have deliberately ignored the incident whose reasons could be easily understood. The political actors who are extremely busy charting the Nepali fate will obviously adopt a quiet posture. Or else the same “dogs” could be sent to their private homes by the friends across the border. The fear factor or subservience?
Kanchan Tamang- a resident of Prangbung VDC-3 aged 20 years had gone towards the bordering area known as Char-Rate along with her six brothers and sisters and a friend. Kanchan was eldest in the group.
According to Milan Tamang who had accompanied Kanchan says, “Kanchan was taking photographs while having food with her brothers and sisters. The SSB from a nearby post all of a sudden arrested her. After she was arrested we ran away. We informed the villagers about her arrest. The villagers made a group and went towards the SSB post. A completely naked Kanchan was later released from the post.”
According to reports that quote the victim and villagers, the SSB men had raped her en masse.
There is no reason to be anti-Indian! Professor N. K. Srivastav! Are you listening? But the reasons are aplenty such as this one.
Nepal PM is helpless and the Nepali leaders will hopefully hush-hush the ghastly incident but the national population remains stunned.
Hopefully, the Indian Prime Minister will bring in some trained dogs to 'train' Nepali leaders. Dr. Singh is shortly to visit Nepal.
