70 year old nun gang raped in West Bengal
15 March 2015, Nirapad News: A septuagenarian nun was gang-raped by a group of miscreants when she tried to stop them from robbing a Christian missionary school in India’s Pashchimbanga (West Bengal) state, police said.
The nun was hospitalized in serious condition after the gang rape. She said 7 to 8 men gang-raped her at the Convent of Jesus and Mary School in Nadia district, 80 kilometers north of Kolkata. The men escaped and police are searching for them, said the officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to reporters.
The criminals tied the school’s security guards with ropes early on Saturday and entered the nuns’ room, where the women were sleeping. They took one of the nuns to another room when she tried to block their way and then raped her, a police official said. The 70-year-old victim was the oldest female employee in the school, he said. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee condemned the incident.
