Women in the country continue to bear the brunt of atrocities even after enactment of stringent laws such as Nirbhaya Act, Union Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas Panabaka Lakshmi has said.

The Minister made these remarks after calling on the next of kin of Bethala Kantha Suneela, a 45-year old woman who was reportedly pushed to death by a group of youth allegedly trying to outrage the modesty of her daughter.

Ms. Lakshmi paid floral tributes at their home in Nazarpet , consoled the members of the family, and assured that the State and Central governments would take care of the family and stringent punishment awarded to the guilty.

The Minister also assured that she would take up the issue of transfer of his younger daughter studying B.Sc (Agriculture) in Chennai to Bapatla Agricultural College.

The Minister said that Speaker Nadendla Manohar made efforts to get Rs. 10 lakh from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund and assured that a government job would be provided to both the daughters after completion of their education.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Y. Tulasi Ramprasad accompanied the Minister.
