Huge protest on Dhekiajuli road

RAJESH MANDAL

DHEKIAJULI: More than 10,000 people spilled to the road in Dhekiajuli on Friday demanding capital punishment of the 5 miscreants who gangraped a Class X girl last month.

Jointly Organized by ATTSA, AASU, AJYCP along with many other local organizations, the protest blocked a huge portion of the vital road for nearly three hours. With banners and playcards, the protesters raised the demand for capital punishment of the five rapists whom the police have already arrested. The protesters further demanded ₹10 lakh compensation for the victim.

The incident took place on the Saraswati puja day when one of the five youths took her away for outing to be joined by the four others inside a car where she was gangraped and they dumped on the roadside the next morning.

Later police have arrested to be sent to the jail.
