New Delhi: In Delhi, a silent march is being held for justice for the 23-year-old braveheart who lost her life fighting a brutal gangrape. Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit is set be a part of this march, labelled as a Women's Dignity March from Bal Bhavan to Raj Ghat in the capital.
The march has been organised by the Delhi Commission for Women and other key ministers in the Delhi government, including Education Minister Kiran Walia and Transport Minister Ramakant Goswami are expected to participate in it as well.
