Jammu: Protests against the rape of a five-year-old girl in Delhi continued in Jammu for the second day with various organisations condemning the incident and demanding action against all those involved in the case. The Jammu unit of the Centre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) said it was shocked by the horrific rape.
"The inaction by the police when the father went to report her missing once again highlights the total indifference and hostility displayed by the police force to any complaints from the poorer sections of society," the organisation alleged. Timely action by the police to find the child could haveprevented the incident, they said.
Hindustan Shiv Sena, led by its president Ashok Gupta, also held a protest demonstration against the crime and said it was high time that the government take stringent steps to curb such incidents. On Saturday, students of Heritage School in Sainik Colony area of the city had held a candle light vigil, while Bhartiya Chetaniya Party (BCP) had demanded termination of the Delhi Police Commissioner.
