Protests continue over gang-rape of Dalit girl

The Joint Action Committee of the women victims, Dalit organisations and others staged a massive dharna in front of the Collectorate in Karimnagar on Thursday demanding action against Huzurabad DSP and Jammikunta Rural CI for neglecting their duties in the Dalit girl’s gang-rape issue.

JAC leaders led by its convenor Surapalli Sujatha, co-convenors Marwadi Sudarshan, J. Jayaraj, Kothapalli Amarnath and others participated in the dharna demanding justice to the victim. Alleging that police negligence had led to the heinous crime, they sought suspension of DSP and CI along with the SI and constable.

Flaying the police lethargy in checking crime against women, they also sought Rs.1 crore compensation to the victim, a government job, three acres of land and double-bed room house. They also warned of direct action against the persons involved in the crime against the women if the police failed to prevent the occurrence of such incidents.

TPCC SC cell memo

In the meantime, TPCC SC cell chairman Arepalli Mohan, TPCC Mahila Congress State president Nerella Sharada, DCC SC cell chairman Uppari Ravi and others submitted a memorandum to the National SC commission member Kamalamma at her camp office in Hyderabad on Thursday. Alleging that the police were responsible for the gang rape of the victim as they failed to respond to the panic call made by another girl, they also stated that the police were trying to shield two other accused persons by claiming that they were minors. Demanding stern action against the culprits involved in the heinous crime, they also sought compensation, government job and agricultural land to the victim.
