Against Life Sentence for Rupam Pathak

The All India Progressive Women’s Association (AIPWA) held protests all over the country against the life sentence to Rupam Pathak of Bihar for the culpable homicide of BJP’s Purnea MLA Raj Kishor Kesri, terming the verdict of the CBI Court to be a “gross miscarriage of justice.”

In the national capital on 11 April, women protested with a dharna at Jantar Mantar, in which several of CPI(ML)’s women candidates in the Delhi MCD polls participated.

On the same day, AIPWA held a protest march in Ranchi culminating at Albert Ekka Chowk in a protest meeting. On 12 April, AIPWA held a protest march from BHU gate to Ravidas Gate in Banaras, culminating in a protest meeting.

On 14 April, AIPWA held an impressive ‘Chakka Jam’ all over Bihar in protest against the verdict. All over the state, women blockaded roads, highways, and rail routes, demanding justice for Rupam Pathak.
