A 14-year-old Dalit girl who was repeatedly sexually assaulted and was forced to drink a corrosive substance died at a hospital on Monday. “The girl was kidnapped twice and her family was threatened. She was even given an acidic substance to drink which made 70 per cent of her organs dysfunctional. Had the police taken timely action, the girl could have been saved,” Burari MLA Sanjeev Jha said.
Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal while condemning the issue, attacked PM Modi for the same. He tweeted, “Why is Modi ji not arresting perpetrators of crime against women. It is shameful that Modi ji has diverted the entire police from protecting women to arresting his political opponents.”
