Aligarh rape case: DCW chief writes to PM Modi, seeks death sentence for accused
Chairperson of Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) Swati Maliwal has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi demanding death sentence for the accused in the rape case of a two-and-a-half-year-girl in Tappal in Aligarh.
Earlier, Maliwal re-tweeted the statement of the mother of the deceased who sought the death penalty for accused.
“Her 2.5-year-old daughter brutally raped & murdered. Eyes gauged out & extreme injury inflicted. Govt arrested culprit but its enough? In a land where Nirbhaya is yet 2 get justice, what hope is 4 the little child? Law of death penalty has been made, yet to be implemented! Sick!” she said.
Four persons including the main accused Zahid, his wife, and associate Aslam have been arrested for abducting and killing the girl in a revenge crime over a financial dispute Zahid had with the child’s father.
The girl’s mutilated body was found on June 2 in a garbage dump. Uttar Pradesh Police had constituted a special investigation team (SIT) to probe the murder.
