How A WhatsApp Tip Uncovered Assam 13-Year-Old’s Rape And Murder



How A WhatsApp Tip Uncovered Assam 13-Year-Old's Rape And Murder

Himanta Sarma visited the family of the girl and assured fresh probe in the case.

A WhatsApp message from a local journalist to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma led to an investigation into a case of the alleged suicide of a 13-year-old tribal girl who worked as a domestic help in Darrang district. The CID investigation was called to figure out whether there was a cover-up by the top police officials of the districts to turn a case of rape and murder of the minor girl to suicide allegedly after being bribed by the accused.  

Assam CID has filed a chargesheet against the main accused Krishna Kamal Baruah, an SSB jawan in whose house the 13-year-old used to work as a help, for an attempt to rape and murder. The CID also registered a separate case of corruption by public servant and arrested a suspended superintendent of police and suspended the Officer in charge of Dhula police station. Three doctors, who did the autopsy and gave an allegedly false report denying rape and a magistrate who had allegedly given a false report have been suspended. 

In June this year, the body of the 13-year-old was found inside Krishna Kamal Baruah’s house at Dhula. The local police and the accused claimed that the girl had committed suicide and her body was given a burial after an autopsy. 

A statement issued by the Assam Police said Raj Mohan Ray was the SP of Darrang district when the case was registered. A fresh case was registered against him after it was established through analyses of bank accounts and other records that he received ₹2 lakh from the family of the accused through the officer-in-charge of the Dhula police station for “extending undue favors to screen the accused and dilute the case”. 

The family members have also claimed that the girl was raped and then murdered. 

The case resurfaced two months later, after a local journalist gave a  tipoff to Assam Chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on WhatsApp.  

“A local journalist from that area has texted me on WhatsApp with a lead on this case and the allegations of the family. I asked my office to ask for a status report of the case from the SP of Darrang  and on receipt of the status report I doubted that there is something fishy in this case as the accused was arrested only after I enquired, so I instructed the DGP that we need to reinvestigate the case and the case was handed over to the CID” Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma said.  

Mr Sarma, along with Assam DGP Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta had visited the house of the victim and assured a fresh investigation following which the SP, Additional SP, and officer in charge of Dhula police station were first suspended and now arrested by CID.  

The CID did a thorough investigation which involved even exhumation of the dead body and a second post-mortem, forensic tests of the clothes, and DNA sample matching of the accused to the semen strains found in the clothes to find out that it was a case of attempted rape and murder. CID officials have added that the 13-year-old had threatened the accused that she would reveal to her parents and accused wife that she was sexually exploited, this is when the accused hit her with a plant object on the skull and neck and strangulated her to death and later hanged her body to stage a suicide.  

“We formed an SIT led by an IGP and within six weeks we did the second post-mortem scientifically, formed a board of forensic experts to look at all forensic evidence, recreated the scene of the crime with a dummy of the same weight and height and we proved scientifically that she would not be in a position to hang herself with that height and then we used tower location, calls records and geo-tagging analytics to find out who all met and where money was exchanged as a bribe to cover up the case, now we have arrested all the key accused in the rape and murder as well as the cover-up case and have filed over 1000 pages charge sheet,” said ADGP (Assam CID)  A.Y.V Krishna said.

The Assam government has decided to reopen all cases of unnatural deaths involving domestic help over the past year.

Peru: Police arrest president after Congress votes to remove him from power | World News




Police in Peru have arrested the country’s president, Pedro Castillo, after Congress voted to remove him from power.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, the National Police of Peru said officers had “intervened”.

A photograph showed a man in a blue jacket sitting on a sofa – apparently Mr Castillo – but his eyes had been blacked out.

The tweet described him as “former president Pedro Castillo”.

Congress voted to remove Mr Castillo and replace him with Vice President Dina Boluarte after he tried to dissolve the legislature, the AP news agency reported.

Ms Boluarte, a 60-year-old lawyer, has since been sworn in as interim president. She becomes Peru’s first female leader.

Representatives voted 101-6, with 10 abstentions, to remove Mr Castillo from office for reasons of “permanent moral incapacity”.

Shortly before the ballot, Mr Castillo said he was installing a new emergency government and called for the next group of representatives to develop a new constitution.

During a televised address, he said he would rule by decree and ordered a nightly curfew starting on Wednesday night.

He also mooted changes in the leadership of the judiciary, police and constitutional court.

In response, the head of Peru’s army resigned, along with four ministers, including those responsible for foreign affairs and the economy.

Mr Castillo took his actions as his opponents in Congress moved towards a third attempt to remove him from office.

The Ombudsman’s Office, an independent government institution, said prior to the congressional vote that Mr Castillo should resign and present himself to judicial authorities.

Mr Castillo, a peasant-turned-president, has denied allegations of corruption against him, saying they are based on “hearsay statements by people who, seeking to lighten their own punishments for supposed crimes by abusing my confidence, are trying to involve me without evidence”.

Federal prosecutors are investigating six cases against him, most of them for alleged corruption.

Anti-corruption groups, White House back money laundering bill in Congress




By Gram Slattery

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. anti-corruption groups are pushing Congress to attach sweeping new money-laundering rules to a year-end bill funding the government that lawmakers aim to pass in the coming weeks, according to aides and lobbyists.

The bipartisan measure, known as the ENABLERS Act, got a boost this week when the White House publicly came out in support of the bill.

“It’s going to really matter that the administration makes absolutely clear that this is a genuine serious priority for them,” Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, one of the bill’s main sponsors, said on Wednesday.

The measure would require professionals who handle money on behalf of clients – including investment managers and some lawyers – to conduct due diligence on the funds’ origins, as banks are typically required to do.

Boosters and opponents say the measure would be the most ambitious overhaul of the nation’s money laundering framework in at least 20 years.

“The ENABLERS Act is the U.S. anti-corruption community’s top priority right now,” said Scott Greytak, director of advocacy at Transparency International’s U.S. branch.

Supporters said they hope to attach the measure to a $1.5 trillion-plus “omnibus” funding bill. The initial deadline for that is Dec. 16, though lawmakers could extend it through a short-term continuing resolution, a possibility which appears increasingly likely.

Failing that, a standalone bill is possible next year, though that could be tougher in a divided Congress with a Republican-controlled House and a Democratic-controlled Senate.

Groups from Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia and elsewhere have thrown their support behind the measure, according to an October letter to congressional leaders seen by Reuters. These groups see ENABLERS as a way to cut illicit Russian capital out of the U.S. financial system.

Industry associations counter that it would create onerous requirements for small businesses who never cross paths with Russian oligarchs or narcotics kingpins. Bar associations argue that lawyers would be obligated to share potentially privileged information about their clients with the government.

Organizations that have lobbied against the bill, according to lobbying disclosures, include cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase and auction house operator Sotheby’s.

Retiring Republican Senator Pat Toomey, who has expressed skepticism about the measure, said it should not be tacked onto a spending bill – a legislative shortcut – and should instead be considered on a stand-alone basis.
