A 20-year-old girl died at a hospital in Delhi on Tuesday, two weeks after she was gang-raped and tortured by four men. Reportedly, the victim’s tongue was also cut off in the horrific assault inflicted upon her. Reports also stated that the girl belonged to the Scheduled Caste community, whereas the four culprits are from the upper caste. There has been a huge outrage and several Bollywood celebrities also took to social media to express anger over the shocking incident. Here’s what they said:
Angry & Frustrated! Such brutality in #Hathrasgangrape.When will this stop?Our laws & their enforcement must be so strict that the mere thought of punishment makes rapists shudder with fear!Hang the culprits. Raise ur voice to safeguard daughters & sisters – it’s the least we can do.
Tried really hard to gather my thoughts before expressing my sorrow, anger & disgust. It’s 2020 & still so many Nirbhayas have to give their lives. Can’t imagine the pain she must have endured & her family. Praying for severe punishment & justice #RIPManishaValmiki.
I sincerely hope that strictest punishment is given to the barbaric men who have carried out such a horrific, inhuman act on a young life and caused her family irreparable pain.
Gut wrenching!! Angry! When will these monsters fear the consequences of such inhuman acts??
