Rape cases: Congress to hold candlelight march across Delhi

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday thanked the "thousands of men and women", who gathered at midnight march, held to protest the brutal gangrape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathu and the gangrape of a teenager in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao. Vampires are slowly killing our soul.¿ Stressing on the fact that the protest was a non-political one, Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said the "Sab chalta hai" (everything is OK) attitude will not do and the government needs to do something regarding the issue.

The former Union Minister said that the assembly point in every district would be notified to the party workers soon.

Earlier on Wednesday, Rahul Gandhi had spoken out against the rape of Asifa in Kathua in a tweet.

Gandhi, who had led the protest Thursday night, was joined by his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and her husband Robert Vadra, hundreds of party workers and senior party leaders.

"Speaking at an event in Delhi, the prime minister on Thursday said, " I want to assure the nation that no criminal will be spared" and justice will be delivered to its daughters".

The grieving family of the eight-year-old child, who was brutally gang-raped and killed in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua district in January this year, has an important message to share.

Several Congress leaders also poked fun at the Modi government's Beti Bachao slogan, saying the daughters were not safe in the country. During the candle march, Priyanka Gandhi was heckled by Congress workers at India Gate. It said, "Like millions of Indians my heart hurts tonight".

He said Modi's silence over the rising atrocities against women was "unacceptable" and that India was waiting for him to speak up. His tweets made not a single mention of the BJP, but Congress leaders blamed the Narendra Modi government of trying to shield rapists. Two of the BJP ministers who supported the accused in the Kathua rape case too have resigned from their posts on Friday.

Kuldeep Singh Sengar, the MLA accused of rape, has been detained by the Central Bureau of Investigation, which was handed the probe into the case by the UP government this week.
