Justice has so far eluded Rashmita Kumari Raul despite sitting on dharna in front of her father-in-law’s house for over two months alleging domestic violence.

The lady teacher from Podapalli village under Dharakot block in Ganjam district alleged that she had married to one Jitendra Muni of Podapali village in 2014. However, after a few years, her in-laws demanded more dowry and inflicted domestic violence on her. Even Golanthara police didn’t accept the FIR she lodged against her in-laws.

Later, following the footstep of Tapaswini Dash who sat on agitation in front of her father-in-law’s house at Bramhanagar in Berhampur demanding acceptance as Dr. Sumit Sahu’s wife and entry into the house, Rashmita didn’t lose courage and kept on fighting.

With cooperation from lady social worker Pramila Tripathy, Rashmita moved Orissa High Court seeking justice. Following intervention by the Court, Rashmita has now a ray of hope as Golanthara police has booked her in-laws. Subsequently, arrest warrants have been issued against the victim’s husband, father-in-law, mother-in-law and sister-in-law.

Rashmita has demanded immediate arrest of the accused. “Issuance of arrest warrants is not enough. The culprits should be arrested immediately. I will stage a protest in front of DGP’s office if they are not arrested immediately,” said Rashmita.

Meanwhile, social activist Pramila demanded exemplary punishment against the culprits.

“Following the intervention of the High Court, Golanthara police investigated the case properly and issued arrest warrants against the culprits. They should be arrested immediately and Rshmita should get justice soon,” said Pramila.
