A lifetime gone

The Times of India reports from Jabalpur:
It was a hot catch. A teenaged girl fighting on the frontline of the Naxalite campaign. But soon, police found the tribal girl couldn’t talk. So what did they do? Well, a constable raped her and then the police left her in a Nari Niketan and forgot all about her. That was 13 years ago.

This week, Madhya Pradesh police finally admitted they were wrong about the dumb girl who’s called Pappe by other Niketan inmates. So finally she’s free.
