Kathua-Unnao Rape Cases: Congress to hold candle march across all states

Congress leader Raj Babbar

Congress president Rahul Gandhi's midnight candlelight vigil to seek justice for the Kathua and Unnao minors is said to have been planned just a few hours before he announced it on Twitter at 9.39 pm Thursday.

Even the reaction of the normally tweet-happy Prime Minister Narendra Modi was a case of too little too late, coming as it did only on Friday evening, three full days after the incident had started gnawing at the collective conscience of the nation from Kashmir to Kerala. What do YOU think about the growing violence against women & children? 2.

"Conscience of India is outraged by the BJP's protection of rapists". Rahul Gandhi had tweeted.

Leading the candle march at India Gate Rahul Gandhi said, "We want the government to act against violence and crimes against women".

Former Congress president Sonia Gandhi, her daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, senior party leaders Salman Khurshid, Ahmed Patel, Ashok Gehlot, and Ambika Soni also took part in the protest. Her body was found in the same area a week later.

"The government is sleeping and so at this time, Congress will have to wake them up".

Did Trump tip his hand? In another tweet, Trump called the Syrian leader a "gas killing animal". Besides, aid agencies deployed by United Nations in Syria are unable to access eastern Ghouta.

She, however, said they were "misled and misguided" by people and accused the Congress of communalising the rape incidents. "We don't need answers from the government about what is happening - society is diseased and politics is just a reflection of that".

"What happened in Kathua is beyond humanity; an eight-year-old was kidnapped, brutally raped by many men, including a juvenile, and tortured till she died", he said. "Our daughters will get justice", he said at an event to inaugurate the B.R. Ambedkar memorial in New Delhi.

Singhvi added: "Look at Lekhi's language - 'You see their plan, first shout minority-minority, then Dalit-Dalit, and now women-women.' This shows the mindset of the ruling party".

Nine accused, including the alleged mastermind Sanji Ram - an ex-bureaucrat - and his son Vishal Kumar, a police head constable, two SPOs and a sub-inspector of police, have been arrested in the case. India simply can not continue to treat its women the way it does. "What is the point of 'beti bachao" [the government's "save the girl child' campaign] if investigations and inquiries in such cases are not done in a proper manner and evidence is allowed to be destroyed?"

The protesting bar members demanded that the case is transferred from Kathua. Sengar has now been detained after CBI took over the probe into the case.
