In continuation with our previous petition dated 22nd February 2016 seeking your intervention into the above matter, we would like to furnish some additional facts which have emerged in the interim and which add to our existing apprehensions about the situation in Bastar.

While PUDR understands that Indian society is deeply patriachal, it also believes that the Indian state is primarily responsible for the sorry state of women's rights in this country, and that its actions enforces and sustains the inequality of women in the family, community and society. The fact is that rape is a crime whose basis lies in the operation of power: patriarchal, class, caste, ethnic and religion, and of the state. Thus raping women is used as an instrument to attack communities and to bring them to their knees by the state forces wherever armed forces are deployed.
