Unnao rape

The mortal remains of Unnao rape victim is now being taken for last rites. She passed away during treatment at Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital on December 6.

Ahead of the death of Unnao rape victim, her family has refused to cremate the 23-year-old woman's body until the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visits them.

A number of protesters including some local Congress leaders sustained injuries as police used force to disperse the crowd which gathered outside the residence of the victim and shouted slogans.

In times, when the infamous gang-rape and murder case of Hyderabad surfaced on internet, a question on women safety in India took a prime spot in slogans, protests and on news-paper headlines. Suddenly, the whole media was seen concerned over women safety and demanded strict laws and fast track courts, to instill fear of law in people.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath on Saturday claimed that a fast-track court would hear the case of the 23-year-old rape complainant from Unnao, who died after being set on fire by her alleged rapists.

Terming the day as "Black Day", he demanded that the BJP government be removed after accusing it of failing to protect women in the state.

While opposition leaders accused the Uttar Pradesh government of failing to provide security and justice to those brutalised by sexual violence in the state, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath gave the assurance that the case would be pleaded in a fast track court to provide speedy justice to the deceased woman's family.

Earlier today, Ghaziabad Additional District Magistrate Shailendra Kumar Singh had said the administration was ready to airlift or take the body by road to her village.
