    Delhi seethes in anger over child's rape, protests spread

    In a throwback to days of December last, Delhi on Saturday seethed in anger over the rape of a five-year-old girl and police insensitivity in dealing with it as protests erupted demanding justice for the victim and removal of Delhi Police commissioner Neeraj Kumar.

    On a day the accused Manoj Kumar was arrested from Bihar's Muzaffarpur, protesters clashed with police outside the police headquarters and demanded the arrest of policemen who tried to hush up the case offering money to the victim's parents and slapping young women protesters.

    Though not in thousands, a large number of people hit the streets in a reminder of the protests that rocked the capital after the December 16 gang rape and assault of a girl in a moving bus.

    Protesters belonging to womens' organizations, BJP, CPM, CPI, AAP, and their students and youth outfits clashed with the police when they tried to break the barricades and enter into the police headquarters near the ITO in central Delhi where the main roads were closed to traffic.

    A protester was detained for trying to enter the police headquarters.

    Besides police headquarters, protests were also witnessed at the residences of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and home minister Sushilkumar Shinde, AIIMS and Gandhinagar police station in east Delhi.

    Security was tightened in police headquarters, AIIMS with deployment of armed police personnel and at the residences of Shinde and Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit.

    Protesters also took to the streets near AIIMS where the girl was shifted to last evening for treatment. The condition of the girl was stable on Saturday, doctors attending on her at AIIMS said.

    The protesters directed their attack on the policemen of Gandhi Nagar who allegedly tried to hush up the case by offering money to the parents of the victim and not pursue the case.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
