Rajya Sabha expressed concern on Kerala rape and murder case:


New Delhi: May 04:  Rajya Sabha members demanded “exemplary punishment” for the culprits in the rape and murder of a Dalit woman in Kerala. C P Narayanan of CPI(M) raised the issue in zero hour and termed the incident as “dastardly attack” similar to that of the Nirbhaya incident in Delhi. He also informed the house regarding similar rape incidents occurred in Kasargod last week. Participating in discussion several members demanded strict action against the culprits.

Social Justice Minister Thawar Chand Gehlot on Wednesday said he will visit the village of the rape victim on Thursday. ‘I will go to Kerala tomorrow and meet the family of the girl. I will help them in getting justice,” he added.

D Raja (CPI) said, legislation has proved to be of no help. He drew attention of the government towards the atrocities committed against Dalits across the country.

“The House is concerned. Stringent action should be taken and exemplary punishment given. Do everything possible so that such incidents do not happen,” Kurien said.
