Mayawati asks Supreme Court to act against Congress government in Rajasthan over Alwar rape case

The National Commission for Scheduled Castes has asked for a criminal case against the police officers who allegedly delayed acting on the woman's complaint.

Lashing out at the Congress government in Rajasthan, BSP supremo Mayawati has alleged that the Congress administration and the police in the state repressed the Alwar rape case until the elections got over in that constituency. Mayawati has asked the apex court to intervene and announce the strictest punishment against them.

In addition, Mayawati has also said that this case is not just related to Dalits but all women. She further expressed her lament saying that the Election Commission has failed to take concrete action against politicians who have made derogatory remarks against women.

Taking a strong stand over the issue, Mayawati stated that the culprits should be hanged and the SC should act against the Congress government and the state police in Rajasthan.

A Dalit woman was gang-raped in Rajasthan’s Alwar on April 26, 2019. A clip of the rape was circulated by her attackers which provoked outrage and protest across the state. The police were informed of the rape on April 30. Her husband has alleged that the police didn’t file an FIR on April 30 but delayed it till May 7, 2019, after the elections in the state got over on May 6, 2019.

The National Commission for Scheduled Castes has asked for a criminal case against the police officers who allegedly delayed acting on the woman’s complaint. The Commission’s vice chairman L Murgan has asked the negligent police officers be booked under Section 4 of the SC/ST Act and charge-sheet be filed within 15 days. The police, in their defence, claim that they have arrested all 6 culprits involved in the gang-rape.

It is notable here that Mayawati had given her support to Congress in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan after the assembly elections in December 2018. However, she had stated that she does not support the ideologies of Congress but is extending her support only to keep the BJP out of power.
