Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday condoled the “heart-wrenching” death of the Unnao rape victim who was set ablaze and said another daughter has lost her life while awaiting justice. The rape victim, who was airlifted to a Delhi hospital after she was set ablaze allegedly by five persons, including two men accused of raping her, died on Friday night.
“The saddening and heart-wrenching death of the innocent daughter of Unnao, that has shamed humanity, has left me angered and stunned. Another daughter has lost her life while awaiting justice and security,” Gandhi said in a tweet in Hindi.
उन्नाव की मासूम बेटी की दुखद एवं हृदय विदारक मौत, मानवता को शर्मसार करने वाली घटना से आक्रोशित एवं स्तब्ध हूं। एक और बेटी ने न्याय और सुरक्षा के आस में दम तोड़ दिया।
