A statement said that the incident occurred while the victim was returning home after her scheduled work from a Nursing home as per report collected by the Forum. It added while the victim widow was crossing Kendriya Vidyalaya School, she was offered a lift by one person on bike namely one Kanhai Lal Goala, after being insisted by him on being as a person living nearby Basti she agreed to sit on his motorcycle. Taking advantage she was raped by him along with his two followers the statement said.
The statement further added that, after returning home, she along with his family members immediately rushed to Gunghoor police station. As instructed by Officer-In-Charge of the said station, she was taken to Shilchar Medical College & Hospital by women police constable and there she was found to be tested positive for Covid-19 and denied medical examination and is pending till date. Delay in medical examination
will lead to loss of vital evidence which is the negligence from the path of the police and the medical institution.

Later the Forum urged the Government of Assam to conduct the medical examination immediately and also direct the social welfare department to provide psychological support and compensation to the victim as soon as possible.
The Forum urged the government of Assam to award stringent punishment to the culprits as they conducted a brutal inhumane act during this deadly coronavirus pandemic and also to take necessary action against the concerned police station for not conducting a medical examination.
YFPHR had already made written communication to the SP and DC of Cachar District regarding the matter and added that they will write to the DGP and CM of Assam for speedy investigation
