New Delhi: Condemning the rape of a minor girl in Alwar, Rajasthan’s Congress Minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas on Thursday strongly said that the culprits of the crime will be imprisoned.
“This is a mental disorder and no accused will be spared. There is only one place for culprits of rape in Rajasthan, that is jail,” Pratap Singh told news agency ANI.
Upon investigation, police found that the accused used to live with the eight-year-old victim. Meanwhile, further probe in the case is underway. Earlier on Thursday, the DSP of South Alwar Deepak Kumar was quoted by news agency ANI as saying, “The 8-year-old girl is presently out of danger and is being treated at hospital. Prima facie, it is found that the accused used to live with the girl. We are investigating the matter.”
Last month, in another horrifying incident of sexual assault in Rajasthan, a teenager ran naked on the street escaping from three men who had kidnapped her from a temple in Bhilwara, and later thrashed and raped her. The incident took place while the girl along with her cousin and a friend were on their way to the temple while returning from a fair. The accused are now serving their jail term.
Similarly, in the month of July this year, protests erupted in Jaipur after a seven-year-old girl was kidnapped and raped by an unidentified person in Shastri Nagar area. The victim was later reported as stable after she received treatment at a hospital. After the incident, Congress leader Mahesh Joshi along with his party legislators Amin Kagzi and Rafiq Khan met the victim’s father and handed over a compensatory cheque of Rs 5 lakh, stated a report.
