A 14-year-old girl died Sunday in another case of a lower-caste woman allegedly being raped by the same man twice in India. The victim was kidnapped in May by the same suspect who allegedly attacked her in December of last year, according to a police report filed by her parents, a senior Delhi official was quoted saying. The suspect was reportedly out on bail while he awaited trial for his first rape of the teenager.
Her parents told police she had been forced to drink chemicals by her alleged attacker. With the rape of another minor in the capital, comes to light the kind of safety women are still being deprived in a city like Delhi
In line with the unstoppable events, Delhi-BJP on Monday demanded Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal‘s resignation, saying his government has “completely failed” on women security front, a day after AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan was arrested for allegedly trying to mow down a woman. To add to the pre-existing mistrust in the Delhi CM, another heinous crime of sexual nature against a minor girl has been committed right under his nose. Even then, Kejriwal remains oblivious to how real the problems of women are in the capital.
City BJP unit president Satish Upadhyay brought out a “charge sheet” claiming there were allegations of “atrocities on women, fraud, graft and religious frenzy” against AAP workers and said the ruling party stands “exposed” on the issue of probity. “Of the 70 election promises of Kejriwal, women security was the most hyped. But after coming to power, his government has ignored the issue and not launched any concrete programme in this direction,” he alleged.
“The Delhi Commission for Women has become a political playground. Matters related to domestic violence involving MLAs and women harassment by legislators and their goons have became a routine. “The situation has turned worse…The family of an AAP volunteer, who allegedly committed suicide after facing harassment at the hands of a party colleague, told the media that Kejriwal asked her to compromise,” Upadhyay alleged.
The city BJP chief said Kejriwal should resign from the post of Chief Minister as he has failed to fulfill even one out of 70 promises he made to the people of the city in the run-up to the Assembly polls.
Due to the blissful ignorance of the CM, the women in the city still continue to live around miscreants and with a sense of fear that throbs within them every day in and out. Where is our CM when the city needs him? Stricter laws. Stricter punishment. Stricter action. All these empty promises go down the drain, staking women’s security furthermore.
