Tanda Urmar, October 25

Social Security, Women and Child Development Minister Aruna Chaudhary today met the family of the six-year-old girl who was raped and murdered at Jalalpur village here.

Interacting with the family, the minister said Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh was personally looking into matter to ensure speedy trial and justice to the family.

Hang the rapists: minor's father

We need nothing but justice for our daughter. Harshest punishment should be given to the accused. Such culprits should be hanged so that no one dares commit such an act again.


Accompanied by CM's political secretary and Urmar MLA Sangat Singh Gilzian and Hoshiarpur Deputy Commissioner Apneet Riyait, the minister promised the family that the state government would stand by it in the hour of grief and the accused would not be spared at any cost.

Answering questions of mediapersons, the minister slammed BJP leaders for their attempts to "reap political benefits out of the sensitive incident".

Responding to another query regarding comparison of the Tanda incident with the Hathras case, Chaudhary said the entire nation was fully aware about the facts of both incidents.

Lashing out at the BJP for politicising the issue, she said it had blatantly ignored human rights and sentiments of the Hathras family by openly shielding the accused and cremating the rape victim in the dead of night.

Chaudhary said the Punjab Police took swift action by filing an FIR and arresting the accused shortly after the incident was reported.

Yesterday, Minister for Industries and Commerce Sunder Sham Arora had also met the victim's family and announced a five marla residential plot for the members in the village.
