India: Harassment/Fear for safety

, Index number: ASA 20/023/1999

Amnesty International is concerned for the safety of Gulsham Bano, her mother Raja Begum and father Muhammed Shafi Wani, and their family, who have reportedly been continually harassed by members of the ADA-322 battalion of the Indian army since 19 March 1999, when Gulsham Bano and her mother lodged a complaint that they had been raped by members of the battalion. On 31 May Gulsham Bano and her father were detained for several hours and reportedly threatened with false charges by members of the battalion, in an attempt to force the women to drop the complaint.
