NCPCR President Priyank Kanungo tweeted, “NCPCR took cognizance of violation of the #POCSO Act by revealing the identity of the parents of a victim girl and issued a notice to Twitter India against the Twitter handle of Rahul Gandhi. Notice has been issued to take action and remove the post.
On Wednesday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had reached Delhi to meet the relatives of the alleged rape-murder victim. After this meeting, Rahul Gandhi shared the picture of the minor girl’s family in the tweet handle and wrote, “The tears of the parents are saying only one thing – their daughter, the daughter of the country deserves justice. And the way of this justice.” But I’m with them.”
Significantly, the victim’s family alleges that on Sunday, at 5.30 pm, the 9-year-old girl had gone to the old Nangal crematorium to fetch water, when she did not return, her mother searched. Meanwhile, her mother came to know that the girl was lying dead inside the crematorium. The girl’s mother says that the pandit told this thing that when the girl was filling water from the water cooler, she died due to electrocution. At the behest of the pandit, the last rites of the girl were performed there. However, on coming to know about the villagers, they gathered and after pouring water on the pyre, took out the half-burnt body and informed the police about the matter.
