Mumbai: Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Assembly Devendra Fadnavis on Saturday demanded that the Sakinaka incident be a disgrace to humanity and that the court should give death sentence to the culprits. The incidents of rape and atrocities against women in Amravati, Pune, Pimpri, Nagpur and other places in the last few days are a blow to the state’s reputation. However, the government is engaged in illegal transfers of senior officials, said Fadnavis.
All the accused in the Sakinaka case should be arrested immediately and the case should be taken to court expeditiously. For this, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray should meet the Chief Justice of the Mumbai High Court and make a request. The session is just beginning on the power law. Yet there are also strict provisions in the law currently in force.
Fadnavis said the government does not have time to appoint a chairperson of the women’s commission.
‘There is no fear of law in the state’
Mumbai: While demanding severe punishment for the accused in the Sakinaka rape case, BJP state president Chandrakant Patil said that there is no fear of police and law in the state. Leaders and activists of Mahavikas Aghadi parties have been implicated in recent crimes in the state and the government has been pressuring the police not to take action against them.
Chargesheet to be filed within a month
Mumbai: Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday directed senior police officials to file a chargesheet against the accused in the Sakinaka rape case within a month and ensure that Mumbai’s image as a safe city is not tarnished.
The brutal rape and subsequent death of a woman in Sakinaka is a very unfortunate incident and within a month the accused should be indicted and the speedy justice should be shown to such monsters so that no one would dare to do so again. Thackeray also directed that special government prosecutors be appointed in the case from tomorrow to prepare for the trial.
