“If we can’t protect our daughters, sisters and wives, then we shouldn’t be living in a civilized society. If we lack the courage to take on the rapists, we deserve a more severe punishment than they do… so come and join us to protect the honour of our women,” he said, as reported by the Times of India.

His words were sufficient to put a foot forward to battle and raise voices against the wrongdoings.

It was especially imperative on the grounds that Sutia had seen around 33 assaults, around twelve killings and different blackmails. The pack was driven by Sushanta Choudhury who ‘utilized’ assault and coercion to hold individuals at recover. The occupants had no alternative however to consent to his repulsive requests.

The careful endeavors bore comes about when five lawbreakers, including Sushanta, were condemned to life detainment.

Biswas’ senior sibling educated, “Barun knew his life was under threat but he didn’t bother. He always had a daring streak. He looked like the boy next door but believe me, he had nerves of steel. He was scared of no one and he loved helping people, often at the cost of his own comfort. Barun kept nothing for himself, other than his bed which he would give away to the students he helped. A year ago, he finally gave it to a neighbour and would sleep on plastic sheets. Even the man who pointed him out to the assassins at Gobardanga station had received rice from him a week ago.”

There are numerous individuals who talked for Biswas.

“Women were being raped and molested in front of their husbands and children. We were forced to pay even for a puja at our home. The gang enjoyed political support. Initially, none of us knew how to begin. Till Barun walked into that street-corner meeting and threw caution and fear to the winds. It was just the spark that we needed and the protest soon snowballed into an agitation that eventually ended the reign of terror,” says Hitlal Bayen, Biswas’s neighbour.
