Balrampur (UP) Oct 5 (PTI) On the directives of Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, a nine-member delegation of the party on Monday met the family of a Dalit woman who died here after allegedly being raped by two men.
Led by Congress Legislature Party leader Aradhana Mishra, the delegation met the family members and enquired about the details of the case.
Later, talking to newspersons, Mishra said she will be handing over a report of the case to Priyanka Gandhi soon and also meet Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
She said her party demands proper security for the victim's family and immediate arrest of all culprits.
We also demand a compensation of Rs one crore for the family and a government job for one of family members, she said.
To a question, Mishra said crime rises under a government which gives shelter to criminals and the BJP government in the state is an example of that.
She cited the Unnao rape case and Chinmayanand case among others to stress the point.
The 22-year-old Scheduled Caste woman died while being taken to a hospital after she was allegedly raped last week. Both the accused in the incident have been arrested. PTI COR SAB RHL
