The real story of a brave heart

cinema1Barun Biswas, a school teacher was murdered by the gangsters for his crusade against those rapists who raped hundreds of women at Sutia in North 24-Pargana district, around 80 km from Calcutta during 2002-2003. On July 5 2012, Barun was shot dead when he was entering Gobordanga railway station which is 8 km away from Sutia with full public view.
