Challan in Hoshiarpur rape-murder case to be filed this week: Punjab CM

Challan in Hoshiarpur rape-murder case to be filed this week: Punjab CM

Patiala, Oct 25 (UNI) Asserting that in sharp contrast to the UP government’s response to the Hathras horror, his government had taken swift action in the Hoshiarpur rape-murder incident, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Sunday said the challan in case will be presented in court this week.
The Chief Minister pointed out that prompt action had been taken by the Punjab Police and the accused had been caught without delay, unlike in Hathras. That was why Rahul Gandhi had to rush to Hathras, to secure justice for the victim’s family, and did not need to visit Hoshiarpur, he added, while interacting informally with mediapersons here.
Asked to comment on Union Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s remarks on 'selective outrage', he reiterated that had the Punjab Government or Police failed to respond with swiftness in Hoshiarpur case, Rahul, Priyanka and others would have reacted the same way as they did in the case of Hathras. He pointed out that he already commented on Ms Sitharaman’s statement yesterday in detail.
