Bihar gang rape survivor gets bail after one week.
An alleged gang rape survivor in North Bihar, who was sent to jail last week following a ruckus before the magistrate during recording of her statement, was on Friday granted bail, according to the social organisation which has taken up her cause.
Araria – based Jan Jagrati Shakti Sangathan, which had been looking after the 22 year old woman ever since the sexual assault left her rattled, said the order was passed by the Chief Justice magistrates court there.
“ We were happy that a special hearing on our bail petition was
conducted” the JJSS said here in a statement, adding that an
exception was made in the case amid state – wide lockdown,
which has affected judicial work at lower courts.
The girl was allegedly raped in Araria by four persons on July 6 when she was out of her home, learning how to ride a bike by an acquaintance who fled the spot when the perpetrators pounced on her.
She was spotted by JJSS workers who first accompanied her home, but noticing the unsympathetic attitude of the family members, decided to look after her while she fought for justice.
