Unnao rape victim's village wears a deserted look, father demands justice

Unnao, Dec 7 (UNI) Following the Unnao rape victim's death in New Delhi's Safdarganj hospital after she was set ablaze by the five accused, the Hindunagar Bhatan Khera village in the Bihar area here wore a deserted look.
With the body expected to reach the village any time, vigil has been made stringent. Apart from security personnel, mediapersons are also present in large numbers.
Amid possibility that Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra may reach here, the district administration is being cautious. Additional SP Vinoi Kumar Pandey and ADM Rakesh Singh are present on the spot along with Circle Officer (CO) Gaurav Tripathi.
Reacting to a question of getting justice and government aid, the father of the victim said, "My daughter wanted to live and see the accused getting punished. I do not want money or a house. I do not have any such desires. Those who put my daughter in that position should get the strictest punishment."
Further, he said, "The culprits should either get death punishment or they should be encountered."
The victim's father said the accused used to give them life threats besides threatening to set them on fire. A complaint regarding this given lodged but the police did nothing.
He got to know the news of his daughter's death through a newspaper this morning, the distraught father said. Neither the district nor the police administration came to inform them about her death. More so, neither any leader or local MLA came to enquire about their well being.
Even my FIR had not been registered. It was registered after the court's order. Had the police not been negligent, the circumstances would have been different, he said.
Meanwhile, in a statement issued on Saturday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said the death of the victim was extremely sad and the accused will be given stringent punishment.
Mr Adityanath added that all the accused had been arrested by the police and after sending the matter to a fast track court, the accused will be given strict punishment.
The UP CM extended his condolences to the victim's family.
The 23-year-ols woman was set on fire by five accused on Thursday when she had left her home early morning to travel to Rai Bareli in connection with the case. She then ran about 1800 meters to seek help in the burning state.
She was later admitted to a local Sumerpur hospital wherein she had named the accused in her statement.
She was sent to the Trauma Center at Civil Hospital in Lucknow from where she was air-lifted to New Delhi for better treatment.
She breathed her last at around 2330 hrs on Friday night. All five accused have been arrested.
