Both Unnao and Hyderabad incidents are shameful: Mamata
CALCUTE: prime minister Mamata Banerjee On Friday he said that both Hyderabad and the incidents are shameful and demanded strict legislation to deal with rape cases.
His comment is the background of the four defendants in the rape and murder of a young veterinarian in Hyderabad killed in a meeting on Friday during an exchange of shots before dawn near the capital.
The news of the death of the accused of gangrape was well received by some and raised concern about extrajudicial killings, among others.
The law must always follow its own course and no one can take it into their own hands, he said in a veiled reference to the incident.
Banerjee, a strident critic of the BJP, referred to the horrible incident in Unnao in which his torturers set fire to a rape survivor and suffered 90 percent burns, and said that the government in that state had not provided security to the victim .
Both the Hyderabad and Unnao incidents are shameful. My heart bleeds for the victims. There should be strict laws to deal with such crimes, the prime minister said.
We do not tolerate any crime against women. Everyone knew about the Unnao case, but attempts were made to burn the victim, he said.
Banerjee said that security for women will never be compromised in West Bengal. The police, the administration and the judiciary will perform their duties.
By telling police to file a charge sheet in cases of crimes against women within 10 days, he said the state administration will take strict measures in case of police inaction.
Laws must be strengthened. Measures must be taken quickly, he said and added that the TMC government had taken action in cases of rape within ten days after he came to power in 2014.
