Madhumita Deb described her story in the court premises on Wednesday 3. She said “In 2012 I got married to Madan Mohan Saha of Gosaigaon area of Sreerampur in Kokrajhar District. After marriage I had to go through some harsh situation. At the beginning I tolerated everything with my eyes closed. On the one hand there was this illicit affair of my husband and on the other hand I had face sexual abuse on the hands of my elder brother-in-law. Above that there was a looming threat of death on me if I spoke about my ordeal. I have tolerated all of this and spent more than 7 years in this condition. But during the lockdown period, they suddenly picked me up and put me on a train to send me to my father’s place. Earlier my brother-in-law use to abuse me sexually quite frequently.”
“Last September, I came to my mother’s place to live with her. But I was still worried about the condition of my two children. I went to many people with anguish, but I could get any help. At last some women stood by me and the members of Dream Celebration assured us that we would rescue the children through a legal battle. Then when I went to their Kokrajhar residence with police, I found out that the children were Gujarat by now. After receiving a stringent warning from the police over call, my husband agreed to handover the children to me. This time I will fight against them legally.”
Dream Celebration’s Miss Nikita Banik said, “when we got the news and met Madhumita Dev, we found that her children were in a lot of trouble. The District Legal Services Authority and Advocate Tinku Baidya promised to help us. In the legal battle, Advocate Tinku Baidya offered to help the victim by not charging a single penny for fighting the case. With the help of the Additional Superintendent of Police, Cachar Jagadish Das, we went to Kokrajhar and there the local police were on our side as well. At first, Madan Mohan Saha’s family members refused to handover the children to their mother, then said the children were in Gujarat. The police then called Madan Mohan Saha and told him if he did not listen, he would be arrested with the help of Gujarat police. Fearing arrest, they finally handed over the two children to their mother. Now we will help the children to look after their future and education.
