Amid mounting protest over repeated rapes and molestations, protestors
in Guwahati on Sunday vowed to put the government under pressure to
change the laws to punish the rapists and molesters.
SUCI, Aam Aadmi Party, Marwari Yuva Manch activists staged protests in
different parts of the city since Sunday morning. The activists
demanded the Centre take urgent steps to amend the laws of the country
to curb atrocities on women.
Members of the AAP took out a candlelight procession on the banks of
Dighalipukhuri in the heart of the city in the evening. AAP leaders
said that all pending rape cases in the courts should be tried in
fast-track courts and a special session of Parliament should be called
in view of the gang rape. Women and schoolgirls in large numbers
thronged the streets with AAP demanding that the Centre bring in new
laws to safeguard women.
