Prime Minister Narendra Modi while breaking his silence on Kathua and Unnao rape cases said on Friday the victims would definitely get justice. What do YOU think about the growing violence against women and children? "2".
"Conscience of India is outraged by the BJP's protection of rapists". India is waiting, "Rahul tweeted". On Thursday, Rahul tweeted and lead a midnight candlelight march to protest crimes against women in the national capital.
Chief Minister Mufti has called a meeting of Peoples Democratic Party legislators and senior leaders in Srinagar for April 14 to plan the next steps in the Kathua rape and murder case and how to best restore order in the Kashmir Valley. Her body was found in the same area a week later.
After the plan had been discussed with him, Patel spread the word among other leaders of the party, including Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken, Mahila Congress president Sushmita Dev, Congress general secretary Ashok Gehlot, and Rajya Sabha members Ghulam Nabi Azad and Digvijaya Singh.
"Join me in a silent, peaceful, candlelight vigil at India Gate at midnight tonight to protest this violence and demand justice", he said on his twitter handle before the protest.
Calling the incidents shameful, the PM, who was criticized by the opposition for not condemning the incidents, said there was no place for such violence in a civilised society and that "as a country, as a society we all are ashamed of it".
Gandhi, amid slogans against the BJP and the prime minister during the march last night, had claimed that the women of the country are afraid to go out and the government must ensure their safety.
An eight-year-old girl was abducted and raped over and over before being horrendously murdered by a group of men in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua. India simply can not continue to treat its women the way it does.
A Special Investigation Team of Crime Branch, formed to probe the incident, has arrested eight people, including two special police officers (SPOs) and a head constable and a sub-inspector, who were charged with destroying evidence. You can see people across parties have joined.
Both the Unnao and Kathua rape cases have a marked similarity in the sense that in both cases the assailants have been identified, yet justice is yet to be served.
Sengar was questioned by the CBI on Friday, while seven men who raped the minor girl of the Bakarwal community in Jammu have been chargesheeted and kept in police custody.
