Mir Amirul Islam was a private tutor under Karaya police station in Kolkata, he set himself on fire in early December to protest against police apathy in registering a rape case.
The parents of the girl tried to register a complaint in October but were turned away by the police, then a couple of days later they registered a complaint of molestation.
A few days after Islam started to unite people against the reluctance shown by the cops, the accused’s wife (!) lodged a counter complaint against Islam, ransacking her house and taking away 1 Lakh rupee.
The police booked him, afraid that he will be falsely implicated he set himself on fire.
The police changed the charge to rape.
Now, can’t we hope for a little gratitude and humanity from police if others are doing their jobs for them? They were supposed to be protecting this guy for his selfless noble action, in place of that they let him die in a painful death! they may point the finger at the false blame of the accused’s wife, but is she the real reason?
