Guwahati: Once again, the nation shook to another gruesome rape case after a 19-year-old Dalit woman died yesterday at Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital after she was raped by four men in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh a few days ago.
Bollywood actors and Cricket stars took to social media to express their anger over the death of the Dalit girl who was gang-raped by four upper-caste men in Hathras district of Uttar Pradesh.
Indian Cricket Team captain Virat Kohli and Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar, Kangana Ranaut, Riteish Deshmukh, Farhan Akhtar, Richa Chadha, and others condemned the incident and demanded serious punishment to the perpetrators for the heinous crime.
The girl was attacked on September 14 at a village in Hathras, some 200 km from Delhi. She was dragged by her dupatta into the fields where she had been cutting grass with her family. She was first admitted to Aligarh Hospital and was in the ICU. She was later moved to Delhi.
Taking to twitter, Virat Kohli said, “Hope the culprits of this heinous crime will be brought to justice”.

Tried really hard to gather my thoughts before expressing my sorrow, anger & disgust. It’s 2020 & still so many Nirbhayas have to give their lives. Can’t imagine the pain she must have endured & her family. Praying for severe punishment & justice

The woman had suffered multiple fractures, paralysis and a deep gash in her tongue in the savage assault. Injuries to her neck had left her paralysed and she was struggling to breathe according to the doctors. She bit her tongue when her attackers were trying to strangle her.
All four attackers, upper caste men from the woman’s village, are in jail. They will now also be charged with murder.
