“Govt arrested culprit but is it enough? In a land where Nirbhaya is yet to get justice, what hope is for the little child? Law of death penalty has been made, yet to be implemented!”Questions roared by the Chairperson of Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), Swati Maliwal.

Maliwal wrote in the letter that even after enforcing an ordinance that introduced death penalty for rape of girls aged 12 or below, “no new steps” have been taken to prevent incidents of sexual assaults on minor girls despite promises by the government.

“The Unnao and Kathua rape incidents had jolted the nation and people had hit the streets demanding stringent punishment for such offences. I had also proceeded on a hunger strike. Your cabinet had brought in an ordinance that provided for death penalty for those accused of sexually assaulting girls aged 12 and below,” Maliwal wrote in the letter to the prime minister.

“You had also promised that the number of fast-track courts will be increased and better forensic test facilities will be made available to ensure speedy justice to victims. But, no new steps have been taken since to prevent such incidents,” the letter mentioned.

However, the Aligarh Police said that they will probe the murder under the National Security Act (NSA) and transfer the case to a fast track court.

After the incident took place and as the news spread rapidly, the social media got flooded with reactions from celebrities and netizens across the country. However, the comments and reactions on the social media claimed that the minor was raped, her eyes were gouged out and was poured acid on, all of which was false.

The Aligarh police themselves made it clear by tweeting that the allegation stating that the girl was raped is not confirmed yet. “According to the Post Mortem Report rape has not been confirmed till now,” mentioned a tweet by Aligarh police clarifying the false myth believed by the people.
