CPI MP Binoy Viswam reacting to the horrific rape case with a 15-year-old in Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain city said women are under attack in India. Especially in BJP-ruled states. He further added that the Dalits, Bahujan, and minorities are being targeted in the country, demanding the accused should not be allowed to go free, and strict action should be taken against them.
On Ujjain minor girl’s rape case, CPI MP Binoy Viswam said, “Not only Madhya Pradesh, all over the country, the women are under attack. Dalits, Bahujan and minorities are under attack. This is the case all over the country. Wherever the BJP is in power, like Madhya Pradesh, it happens in large size. What we learn from Madhya Pradesh is that a small girl was raped… It is not an isolated case. We demand that such kind of rapist should not be allowed to go free. They should be booked…”
Auto drivers responsible for the brutal rape
The girl, around 12 years of age, was found bleeding on a street located under the Mahakal police station area in Ujjain on Monday. After being found, she was taken to a hospital, where her initial medical examination confirmed that she had been raped, police have said. The girl on Wednesday was operated upon by a team of specialist doctors in Indore and her condition is said to be critical but stable, they said.
The victim walked for 2.5 hours without any help
The Ujjain rape case has sparked nationwide outrage and raised questions over the morality of citizens who refused to help a sexually assaulted minor. The case dates back to September 25 when a 12-year-old girl was raped in Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain and forced to walk eight km for 2.5 hours after locals refused to help her. A disturbing video from Ujjain which surfaced on social media showed the bloodied girl walking semi-naked.
According to the information, the victim girl had met six people at different places. Out of these, four were auto drivers and two were pedestrians. After interrogating three auto drivers, the police reached the fourth auto driver who was found tampering with the evidence inside his auto. He had also tampered with the number plate of his auto. The officials informed that the prime accused’s phone was also switched off for the last 24 hours. The accused confirmed the truth during the interrogation and was thus identified.
