Three people found guilty in Kolkata Park Street rape case

Kolkata, Dec 10 (IANS) All three accused who were under trial in the Park Street gang rape case were pronounced guilty by a court here on Thursday.

The victim — an Anglo-Indian woman — was gang-raped at gun-point inside a moving car on the night of February 5, 2012, after she had come out of a night club on the city’s posh Park Street. She was also beaten up, and thrown out of the car by the accused.

Passing the judgment during in-camera proceedings, Additional Sessions Judge Chiranjib Bhattacharya of the City Sessions Court pronounced Ruman Khan, Naser Khan and Sumit Bajaj guilty of gang rape.

The quantum of punishment will be pronounced on Friday.

However, main accused Kader Khan and a co-accused Ali are still absconding.

The courageous and gutsy Anglo-Indian woman, who came forward and revealed her identity and even urged the world to call her a “rape survivor” and not as the “Park Street rape victim”, however, did not live to see the day when justice was done to her after a gritty fight against heavy odds.

She died of multi-organ failure after being diagnosed with encephalitis on March 13.
