Her comments, made hours before the Delhi gangrape victim had died, had drawn nationwide criticism. But though no one has to come to her aid, the Park Street victim is determined to file a defamation suit against the MP. “She has insulted not only me but every woman in Bengal. My family and I are passing through hell. Her remarks just added to the angst,” she said.
After she was raped in February 2011, the woman had lost her job. “I don’t have enough money to buy food,” she said. But this insult is too much to bear. “I am trying to get a lawyer who will not be too expensive.”
