In a horrifying incident from West Bengal, a man sexually assaulted and tortured a 3-year-old girl, inserting needles into her body in the Purulia district of the state. The girl's mother used to work in the home of the accused.

The girl was admitted to a hospital in Purulia with serious injuries, where the doctors said that needles had been inserted in her body. As her health condition remained serious, the Purulia hospital doctors had the 3-year-old girl referred to the Bankura Medical College Hospital.

In the Nadiara village of Purulia district, the girl's mother used to work in the house of Sanatan Goswami who allegedly tortured and assaulted the girl. In her complaint, the mother has alleged that Goswami tortured the girl and sexually assaulted the minor.

The police after receiving the complaint have lodged a case against Goswami, who is currently absconding.

As crimes against women continue to rise, society often has justifications for the assaults, by blaming the victims clothing, behaviour or actions.

In the name of 'protecting women' guidelines are issued on what is 'proper' behaviour for women, from banning girls from wearing jeans or removing mobile phones from their possession. However, how can an assault on a 3-year-old be justified?
