Crime against women won’t be taken seriously unless it takes place with daughter of influential people: DCW

New Delhi, Aug.1 : Taking serious note of the brutal gang-rape of a woman and her daughter in Bulandshahr, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Maliwal on Monday said that such heinous crimes would not be taken seriously until the same takes place with the daughter of influential people.

"It has crossed all limits of barbarism. A woman is going with her daughter on the national highway and they are dragged out and raped...Is a woman safe nowhere in this country? We just talk about women safety.

This has never happened to a daughter of a politician, probably that is the reason why there is no change," Maliwal told ANI.

"This is happening everywhere, in Delhi, in Bulandshahr, in Chennai. Who will save the daughters of this nation? We have to do something about it. We just talk about it but nothing is done," she added. Meanwhile, a fast track court in Bulandshahr today sent the three accused arrested in connection with this case to 14-day judicial custody.

Under attack from the opposition parties over deteriorating law and order situation in the state, the Samajwadi Party Government yesterday suspended Bulandshahr Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Vaibhav Krishan for dereliction of duty.

Six others, including Superintendent of Police (city) Rammohan Singh, Circle Officer (Sadar) Himanshu Gaurav and SHO Ramsen Singh of Kotwali Dehat, were also suspended.

Uttar Pradesh DGP Javeed Ahmad and Principal Secretary (home) Debasish Panda visited the district yesterday and held closed-door meetings with the concerned officials.
