Molestation charge on CRPF jawan in East Garo Hills

“The accused jawan violated his orders by leaving his position and committed a crime by carrying his weapon and attempting to sexually assault a mother,” claimed the members of the two organisations who lodged a complaint with the CRPF officer in-charge of the checkpoint.

A CRPF personnel on duty at the entry point to Williamnagar town in East Garo Hills district has been accused of molestation after he allegedly groped a woman tea stall owner early on April 2.

East Garo Hills police have registered a case against the jawan which is being forwarded to the court.
The incident reportedly occurred at around 5:30 on Saturday morning when a jawan from the checkpoint at the Baija tri-junction, a road that connects towards Tura, Songsak and Williamnagar, walked off from his duty point towards the tea stall run by a woman, over a kilometre away, in the Chidekgre village area.
The woman, a mother, who always opens her tea stall early in the morning, was alone when the accused jawan walked in and groped her from behind. She fought back his advances and raised an alarm prompting villagers to rush to her aid.
“The jawan has been removed from duty and a case has been registered against him in accordance with a Supreme Court ruling on serving personnel and the court will decide on the case. We have also officially intimated the commanding officer of the CRPF battalion asking for action,” said East Garo Hills Superintendent of Police Bruno A Sangma.
Members of local organisations like the Niksamso A’chik Society and the A’chik Holistic Awakening Movement also visited the scene and met the victim before registering a strong protest with the district authorities demanding stern punishment to the accused paramilitary personnel.
“The accused jawan violated his orders by leaving his position and committed a crime by carrying his weapon and attempting to sexually assault a mother,” claimed the members of the two organisations who lodged a complaint with the CRPF officer in-charge of the checkpoint.
