The woman went on Star Ananda, the clearly number one in news, to allege that she was raped at gunpoint inside a moving car on the night of February 5.She named three persons. Initially,the police found several discrepancies. Pro government media raised doubts and even dubbed the allegation as false. The chief minister of Bengal and supremo of ruling Trinamool Congress Party (TMC) said it is a conspiracy against her government. The insensible comments of Mamata Banarjee was unwanted. Ministers of her cabinet also made statements like the woman was associated with escort services or the woman separated from her husband for a long time.What was she doing there so late at night.Such behaviour is completely unacceptable. Social stigma play a major role.
