Raipur (Chhattisgarh) [India], May 6 (ANI): Raipur Central Jail deputy jailer Varsha Dongre was on Saturday suspended for indiscipline. The action was taken after her Facebook post on alleged police torture of minor tribal girls surfaced. The Chhattisgarh Government had earlier launched an inquiry against Dongre for her Facebook post in which she had alleged that Naxalism will not end because a "capitalist system is being imposed in Bastar" with tribals being pushed out of their lands. She had uploaded the post on Facebook after the recent Maoist attack in Sukma in which 25 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed. In her post, which has now been deleted, Dongre wrote that tribal villages were burnt, their women raped, and she had seen evidence of young tribal girls being tortured at police stations. This is not the first time she has taken on the government. Earlier, she filed a petition in high court about irregularities in the PSC admission process. (ANI)
