Two days after having met the family of six-year-old Tanda rape-murder victim, Punjab State Women Commission chief Manisha Gulati today said even though it was an unfortunate incident, it could not be compared with the Hathras episode.

AAP MLAs seek public hanging

  • Jalandhar: AAP leader and Deputy Leader of Opposition Sarabjit Kaur Manuke and MLA Rupinder Kaur Ruby have demanded public hanging of the perpetrators besides a special fast-track court for a speedy trial. The victims should get special prosecutors and police protection, they said. TNS

Supporting the state government on the incident, she said: "Punjab can never be as unsafe as UP and Bihar. Our state police arrested the accused in no time and are working on expediting the delivery of justice to the victim." Gulati said: "If we tell our girls about good and bad touch, we also need to educate our boys on moral issues. We need to stand against vulgarities and rape scenes in movies and songs."

Meanwhile, Punjab State Commission for Protection of Child Rights chairman Rajinder Singh today directed the Hoshiarpur administration to provide a plot to the victim's family.

The chairman, vice-chairman Sebi Thomas along with member of the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) Yashwant Jain visited the family and later met Deputy Commissioner Apneet Riyait and SSP Navjot Singh Mahal to review the progress in the case.

The SSP informed the commission the challan would be presented in court in the coming days.
