Mr Gandhi, along with former Congress president Sonia Gandhi and sister Priyanka Gandhi, had taken to the streets on Thursday night, leading a candlelight march to protect the Kathua and Unnao rapes and rising incidents of violence against women. "Our daughters will definitely get justice".
The SPG too had a very hard time protecting Rahul Gandhi from the chaotic crowd. He said Modi's slogan of "Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao" was a correct slogan. A week later, her body was found in the same area. Why are accused rapists and murderers protected by the state.
The probe in the Kathua gangrape and murder case has disclosed that the deceased was kidnapped in a temple, drugged, and repeatedly gang-raped, even before her murder to scare the Muslim Bakerwal community to leave the village.
As the spine chilling details of the Kathua gang rape case make it to the mainstream media, comparisons are inevitably being drawn with the horrific Nibhaya gang rape case of Delhi in 2012.
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. The chargesheet in the case names eight people, including a retired government employee and three police officers who allegedly tried to destroy forensic evidence by washing the girl's clothes.
When the political class has ashamed us by maintaining a stoic silence till Thursday over the horrendous rapes of two minors in Jammu and Kashmir and Uttar Pradesh, Bollywood needs a special mention for speaking against crimes against women/girls without mincing any words.
"The government is sleeping and so at this time, Congress will have to wake them up".
Taking lonely lead for his party, Union minister VK Singh has joined his voice to the national outrage. There were even discussions whether the PM was trying to shield BJP members who are the culprits in both the cases.
In the first FIR, the CBI named Sengar and Shashi Singh, a woman who allegedly took the rape victim to the Bharatiya Janata Party leader's house. She was referring to the attempt made by Kathua lawyers this week to prevent J&K crime branch personnel from filing one of its two chargesheets.
