It is reported that today Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will also meet the victim’s family. In this case, the police have arrested four people including the accused priest.
Chandrashekhar of Bhim Army arrived to meet the victim’s family
On Tuesday, Chandrashekhar Azad of the Bhim Army and Delhi Pradesh Congress President Anil Chaudhary also came to meet the victim’s family. However, the leaders had to face opposition from the local people. Local people objected to politicizing the matter. The police have arrested four people including the accused priest in this case.
Demand for justice for the girl’s family
Chandrashekhar Azad said that he will do everything possible to help the victim’s family. He said that girls are not safe in the capital of the country, so what will happen in other parts of the country can be easily understood. In Delhi, marshals are put in buses in the name of women’s safety, while the girl child is unsafe outside the house. What kind of Delhi is this after all?
He said that a new trend is being seen in rape cases that after rape, the dead body should be cremated with the intention of erasing the evidence. He demanded justice for the victim’s family.
