West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee had called the rape case 'fabricated' at the time when it happened
Kolkata’s Park Street rape case shook the country for reasons more than the obvious one.
As the victim, the late Suzette Jordan, who was gang- raped in a moving car in February 2012, went from pillar to post to prove that the incident had indeed happened to her, the chief minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee dismissed it as a fabricated story while Trinamool Congress MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar suggested that Jordan was a sex worker and that the rape was the result of a dispute with a client.
Soon, police officer, Damayanti Sen, who finally cracked the case, was shunted from her post of joint commissioner of police in the crime division in Kolkata to deputy inspector general in charge of training at Barrackpore.
Now, with a Kolkata sessions court finding three of the accused guilty of rape, do you think Mamata Banerjee should take back her remark?
