    Before the horrific incident in Unnao on Thursday, a similar case was reported from UP’s Sambhal a fortnight ago when a 15-year-old girl was raped and burnt as she succumbed to her injuries in Delhi last week. Opposition leaders Akhilesh Yadav and Priyanka Gandhi have raised over half a dozen more shocking incidents of sexual crimes in UP over the past month.

What action has been taken on the police official who refused to register an FIR? What steps are being taken by the government to stop crime against the women, which take place on a daily basis?"

    The report of the victim’s death add to a string of tragic events that have unfolded since last week beginning from the rape and murder of a 26-year old veterinarian in Hyderabad- an act of horror that caused wide outrage across the country.
