Himachal Pradesh, July 19, 2017: In a quest to get the culprits of the heinous crime punished and behind the bars, Member of Parliament Hamirpur,Anurag Thakur raised the issue in the Parliament.
He said that on 16 December 2012, the unfortunate Nirbhaya case took place and the entire nation came together in the fight to get her justice. While the culprits got sentenced but it didn’t stop the occurrence of such cases and a similar incident took place in Kotkhai, Shimla with 16-year-old Gudiya.
Anurag Thakur further said that what is unfortunate is that the event took place on 4 July and Gudiya’s body was recovered on 6 July but till 10 July there was no action taken by the Congress State Government. It was under the pressure of different organizations that police claimed to have cracked the case and posted the photographs of alleged culprits of the case on the Facebook page of the Chief Minister of HP and after a few minutes these were deleted. This raises suspicion that efforts were being made to shield the real culprits. A day later police arrested six other persons and gave their story of the case, which was full of contradictions, and this sparked State vides protests and almost entire State was on boil.
It was sad to see that the MP’s from Congress intervened and were not letting Sh. Anurag Thakur speak. This only goes to show the insensitivity of the Congress leaders towards the daughters of our nation.
He said that one of the accused was killed in the prison and constant efforts are being made to tamper with the truth. Sh. Anurag Thakur said that all that he wants is justice for Gudiya and her family and that the culprits be punished.
Himachal Pradesh is known as Dev Bhoomi and instances like this should never take place on the holy land of Himachal.
