I spoke to a young girl today, who was gang raped by TMC workers. She says she was targeted because she was a Hindu woman and because she worked for BJP. She is still being hounded and threatened to take her complaint back #WestBengal #PostPollViolence +
After a 1.5 hour conversation with her, I was left numb and nauseous. There are several like her who aren’t speaking up. Brutalised by TMC workers. She is a brave girl because she says she won’t take her complaint back even if it means death for her +
I will be uploading some snippets of our conversation today, and her entire story tomorrow. She was gang-raped with her father watching on gun point. She is fighting for justice, bravely, against all odds. She has a message for PM Modi too.

Bench says NHRC was asked to submit report and should confine to it.

"You (NHRC) should not tell how to go forward based in report. That is for petitioner and State to argue."

Has the #WestBengal #COVID19 (partial) lockdown been useful? YES!!! Future prognosis? A thread based on analysis by @cessi_iiserkol team 👇🏾
New daily cases have halved since May 15 (beginning of lockdown).
Left @covid19indiaorg data; Right: CESSI model projection versus data 1/n
The pandemic growth rate has dipped below zero during the lockdown and is in the negative which is desirable. The more negative is the growth rate, the faster is the fall in active cases. Negative growth rate needs to be sustained. 2/n
Test positivity (percentage of those who test positive) has almost halved over the #lockdown period and is around 17% as of May 31. Should be sustained below 2.5% to keep the #COVID19 pandemic at a manageable level and ideally should be 0%! 3/n
