Action should be taken against those who do not help the girl child – Swati Maliwal
On the incident in Ujjain, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal has demanded action against those who did not help the girl. He said, ‘Madhya Pradesh Police should immediately arrest the accused and take strictest action. Who are these people who did not feel mercy? When a 12-year-old little girl, naked and drenched in blood, was going from door to door pleading for help, shouldn’t action be taken against such people? What kind of country are we building? Action should be taken against such people also. The case should go to fast track court and the rapist should be hanged. If such incidents continue to happen every other day, then how will our daughters survive and study? I would appeal for strict action and immediate arrest of the accused.
