The accused reportedly cremated her body allegedly without anyone’s consent. Ever since the case came to light it has become a trending topic.
Celebs from the entertainment industry too expressed their anger on social media and demanded justice for the little girl.
Actor Swara Bhasker took to her social media and wrote, “A 9-year-old child has been raped, murdered and the corpse forcibly cremated! She is a Dalit. The rapist was a priest…in the national capital…is there a more obvious and sickening manifestation of crime, inequality and lawlessness? Am I missing the 2012 Dec outrage?”
