Crimes against women increasing, allegations being levelled against victims: Priyanka Gandhi
NEW DELHI: Crimes against women are increasing but rather than taking note of the victims, allegations are being levelled against them, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said on Monday adding that now women need to take the responsibility for the security and security of other women.
“Crime against women is increasing. Amid this, rather than taking note of the reality and therefore the voices of victim women, defaming them and levelling allegations against them may be a shameless and cowardly act. But the ladies of our country won’t stay silent now,” Priyanka tweeted.
In the following tweet, she said, “If a sister is accused, lakhs of our sister will raise their voices and stand with them. We are taking our responsibilities ourselves. Now women need to take up the responsibility of women’s safety.”
The comment comes after a BJP leader from Uttar Pradesh’s Barabanki claimed that the 20-year-old woman, who succumbed to her injuries at a Delhi hospital on Michaelmas after being assaulted and allegedly gang-raped in Hathras, was having an affair with the accused.
Her mortal remains were taken to her native place, where the UP Police and administration allegedly forcefully cremated her body without the family’s consent or their presence
