New Delhi, Feb. 1 (Delhi Crown): Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday announced a monetary compensation of Rs 10 lakhs to the Shahdara gangrape victim.
The victim, a mother of one, was gang-raped in Shahdara’s Kasturba Nagar last month and then paraded on the streets with her face blackened, hair chopped and a garland of shoes and chappals around her neck.
Shockingly, those who paraded her included women.
Kejriwal said that his government will pay Rs 10 lakhs to the victim, arrange a good lawyer, ensure that the case is heard in a fast-track court and that she gets justice at the earliest.
“I have ordered Rs 10 lakh assistance amount to help this daughter. Delhi government will do everything possible to get justice for this daughter. We are hiring a good lawyer for him. We will also fast track this matter so that the daughter can get justice as soon as possible,” tweeted the Delhi CM.
