Earlier, state Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had appealed to the general public to not harbour the accused in the Rewari gangrape case. Assuring that the two absconding accused will be arrested soon, he said that if anyone is caught giving the two accused a refuge, strict legal action will be taken against them. On the same day, members of various women rights organisations protested outside the Haryana Bhawan in New Delhi, demanding justice for the victim and stringent action against the accused.
The mother of the victim had claimed that she was offered Rs 2 lakh compensation cheque from the government. However, she has refused to accept it and demanded justice for her daughter.
