Rapes Part of Society, Says Haryana Cop, Triggers Outrage

Rapes Part of Society, Says Haryana Cop, Triggers Outrage

Speaking to news agency ANI on recent rapes and killings, RC Mishra, Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Ambala Range, said, "It's part of society".

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar described the incidents as "unfortunate" and said: "We'll take strict action and tie up all the loose ends". Role of police is to probe, nab criminal and prove things.

The main suspect in the rape and murder of the 15-year-old Dalit girl was a Class 12 student who has been found dead in Kurukshetra, Haryana.

Listing down the initiatives taken by the government to ensure women safety, Khattar said, "We started "Dial 100 Project", will also begin "1090 Project" so women in danger can immediately contact police". The youth had been named as the alleged abductor in a complaint lodged by the girl's family after the teenager had gone missing last week from her village in Kurukshetra after leaving home to attend a tuition class. In some cases, the girls' private parts were mutilated, a reminder of the brutal gang rape and murder of a physiotherapy student in Delhi in December 2016 that led to a huge uproar across the country. Still, they were brutally raped and murdered by some shameless and cowards.

"The law and order situation in Haryana is worrisome".

Panipat police chief Rahul Sharma told AFP that two men, both neighbours of the victim, had been arrested over the crime.

"It is not the time for manthans now, it is time to hit the roads and force this government to go", Hooda, who himself is planning to take out a Rath Yatra next month, said when asked to comment on the "shivirs" of Tanwar.

The former CM said that Haryana, which earlier had the highest ranking in development during the Congress rule, now topped in cases of gang rapes and dowry deaths.

It further said, "many gangsters from UP are now turning to Haryana considering it as safe zone". A UN Committee on the Rights of the Child in 2014 said one in three rape victims in India was a minor and expressed alarm over the widespread sexual abuse of children.

According to Hooda, Haryana witnessed major incidents of violence and lost several lives under the present BJP dispensation.
