Kolkata girl gets rape threats for Facebook post on Pulwama terror attack

Days after a Kashmiri doctor said he was considering leaving Kolkata city after his daughters complained of ostracism in school and neighbourhood in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror strike, a teenaged girl from Kolkata was trolled and allegedly threatened with rape on Facebook for a post on the plight of Kashmiris in the wake of the Pulwama attack, she said Wednesday.

While highlighting the daily hardships of Kashmiris, the Class 12 girl condemned the deadly terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama that killed 40 CRPF jawans through Facebook on February 15. 

Some people asked her to leave the country and go to Pakistan in reply to her post, and others threatened rape and dire consequences, she said. 

A local shopkeeper also told her that a few men were trying to locate her house through her Facebook pictures, she claimed.

"Initially, after receiving the threats, I had deleted my post. But after I came to know that some youths were looking for me, I decided to delete my Facebook account. I did not go to school for the last two days," the girl said. 

The girl lodged a complaint on Wednesday, and said police has assured her of all help, including providing security.

The cyber crime division of the Kolkata Police was looking into the matter.
