Siliguri, 06th December: No clue has been found of Kohinoor Khatoon, who has been suffering from Thalassemia, after seven days of the incident. The residents of the Srivash Colony in South Colony, today, protested at the NJP Police station, alleging delay in police action.
Thalassemia is a blood disorder passed down through families (inherited) in which the body makes an abnormal form or inadequate amount of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. The disorder results in large numbers of red blood cells being destroyed, which leads to anemia.
According to the information received, Kohinoor Khatoon has been missing since November 29th. In this context, the local people had lodged a written complaint at the Police station, but no clue of Kohinoor Khatoon has been found even after seven days of the incident. The local people stated that incidents of atrocities and rape on women are increasing across the country, due to which, they are very worried about Kohinoor.
They further stated that a memorandum was also handed over to the Police in this regard, but no actions were taken by the Police. They submitted a memorandum in the Police station again, on Friday and also stated that if the Kohinoor is not found within the next 2-3 days, then, they would protest in the Police station and will sit on a hunger strike if needed.
