Assam girl raped, killed, burnt and thrown to a river

On 28 April, a 20-year-old girl's body was found floating at the Dehing river in Assam's Margherita sub-division of Tinsukia district. According to The Times of India, the girl, a higher secondary student was returning home from beauty parlour when she was abducted and murdered but not before she might have been brutally murdered as per information from the police

Catch News reported that the body of  Champa Chettri, an 18 year old girl from the Nepali community, was discovered in the river only on 3 May — four days after her abduction — in a charred and decomposed state.

According to the TOI report, two accused in the case, Biswajit Khatri and Moinul Ali have been arrested.
Darjeeling Times reported that All Assam Gorkha Students Union (AAGSU), an important student organisation in Guwhati organised a candle light vigil for the rape and murder victim. Nandra Kirati Dewan, was quoted as saying, "The AAGSU considers Rape followed by Murder to be Rarest of Rare crime against Woman and nothing less than death penalty on being convicted fairly be given."
TOI also reported that the AAGSU called a 12-hour bandh in Tinsukia district and educational institutions, banks and business establishments remained shut. Speaking to Catch News, Dewan said that national media has largely ignored the news and "it is reflective of the negligence which the North-East region has been facing in general as far as media coverage is concerned."
Incidentally, a 30-year-old Dalit student of law from Kerala was found raped and murdered in her home in Perumbavoor in Ernakulam. The case received national attention, with many calling the victim Kerala’s Nirbhaya.

Brutal rape, murder of a woman in south India sparks protests 4 MAGGIO 2016

In an eerie similarity, both cases received national media coverage and police scrutiny only days after the crimes occurred.
While speaking to Catch, Nanda Kirati Diwan, social activist and Central Executive Member All Assam Gorkha Students’ Union said, “This is the rarest of the rare crimes still there has been no coverage around it in the national media.”
“This is also reflective of the negligence which the North-East region has been facing in general as far as the media coverage is concerned. Take the example of the furious floods or the rhino poaching- have these issues received aequate coverage?,” asks Diwan.
While Sherpa’s words have been fueled by outrage over the incident, Diwan also warned about the lack of an adequate legal mechanism to deal with perpetrators of such heinous crimes.
“A brutal crime like this should be reciprocated nothing less than a death penalty. Further they cases should be put on a fast-track court so that the victims or tehri families do not have to wait for years for justice,” says Diwan.
He suggested that an electronic directory be set up to monitor the movements of the accused in rape and murder cases.
Meanwhile, activists – including Diwan and Sherpa – are now demanding for proper compensation for Chettri’s family. The activists have also demanded that the case be heard in the higher court so that the accused could be punished without any delay.
