The Delhi Cabinet on Monday met to share the grief of the citizens over the recent horrific incident of gang rape and subsequent demise of girl in Delhi.


Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said the government will give the victim’s family Rs. 15 lakh. The cabinet also decided to offer a job to a family member. 


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday pressed for a special session of Parliament to strengthen the law related to crime against women.

At a condolence meeting held for the gangrape victim at the BJP headquarters, party leaders demanded that convicts sentenced to death in rape cases be disallowed from filing a mercy petition. Sushma Swaraj questioned the “secrecy” surrounding the cremation of the victim.
