Questioning the state government for failing to provide security to women, Jaya Bachchan asked, “A similar incident happened in Hyderabad a day before the vet was raped. Do you not think the security in charge should be questioned and they should be asked to give an answer to why they were not able to protect that area?”.
“I think these people need to be shamed in front of the entire country. People who have not done their jobs properly. These kinds of people (the accused) should be brought out in public and lynched,” Jaya Bachchan said.
The Telangana incident has led to massive protests and an outpouring of rage and grief across the country. On Monday, these protests also reflected in both the houses of parliament with members from both the houses across various political parties expressed shock over the incident and demanded strict punishment for the accused.
Reportedly, Union Minister Rajnath Singh spoke in the Lok Sabha and stated that the central government was “open to every suggestion to curb such heinous crimes”.
“We are ready for discussions in the House so that stringent provisions in the law could be explored to give punishment to those involved in such ghastly incidents,” Rajnath Singh said speaking at Lok Sabha during the Zero hour.
