In a disturbing escalation of events in West Bengal, a woman tragically ended her life after reportedly being publicly flogged over an alleged extramarital affair in Jalpaiguri district. According to reports by PTI and the Indian Express, the woman had been missing for ten days, prompting her husband to file a missing person report. Upon her return, she faced a harrowing ordeal where local women subjected her to verbal abuse and physical assault, questioning her character. When her husband intervened, he too was attacked.

The situation worsened as allegations surfaced involving local leaders and a supposed kangaroo court organized by Malati Roy and her husband Shankar Roy, both affiliated with the Trinamool Congress (TMC). The couple denied direct involvement in the assault but acknowledged being present during the community meeting. They claimed the woman excused herself and later consumed pesticide, tragically ending her life.

Meanwhile, the Chopra incident involving ‘JCB’ Tajmul, another TMC figure, sparked widespread outrage after a video emerged showing him beating a couple with a bamboo stick. Tajmul was subsequently arrested and faces serious charges including attempted murder and assault.

The gravity of these incidents prompted West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose to demand a report from Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, expressing concerns over law and order. Governor Bose’s efforts to seek accountability reflect broader societal anxieties regarding justice and governance in the region.

These tragic events underscore ongoing challenges related to gender violence, community justice systems, and the rule of law in India. They have provoked national debate and soul-searching about the treatment of women, the role of political leaders in local justice, and the responsibilities of state authorities in ensuring safety and justice for all citizens.
