Congress urges Home Minister Amit Shah's statement on Unnao rape survivor accident
New Delhi, July 30 (IBNS): Congress Lok Sabha leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Tuesday demanded a statement from Union Home Minister Amit Shah on the accident of Unnao rape survivor.
Speaking in the Lok Sabha, Adhir said, "We want to inform the nation about the incident and the crime against women. We want strict actions against the culprits. But we are not hopeful completely. So we urge the Home Minister to speak on it in the parliament and satisfy us."
After the Yogi Adityanath received a massive criticism since Sunday, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Uttar Pradesh government has requested the Centre for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the accident of Unnao rape survivor.
A First Information Report (FIR) was filed against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar, who was arrested last year for allegedly raping a minor from Unnao.
