Victim's vendetta: Rape accused BJP MLA murdered by woman in Bihar

A BJP legislator was publicly stabbed to death by a woman who had been raped by him earlier. The woman had complained against the MLA Raj Kishor Kesri but despite registration of case no action was taken against him.

The incident that is indeed shocking and criminal also highlights a woman's frustration as she was apparently hapless as the accused was a powerful leader of the party that is sharing power in the JDU-led alliance in the state.

Kesri, 51, was meeting visitors when the woman Roopam Pathak reached his residence. Draped in a shawl, she was carrying a knife which she suddenly took out when she faced the MLA and stabbed her repeatedly until he fell down. 

She was immediately caught. Kesri, a four-time legislator, died due to critical wounds received in the fatal stabbing spree. The woman who is a school teacher said that the 'rapist' MLA was scot-free while she was bearing the stigma as there was no action on him. 

The 45-year-old woman had lodged a complaint of sexual harassment but rued that it was she who bore the brunt of social disrepute though she was a victim. The woman was beaten up and handed over to the police. She has been charged with murder.
