  • Is this any way to behave well today?

  • A senior police officers said forensic reports suggested the young woman hadn't bean raped.

  • Also relevant is that both victims were from the Dalit community, which is an underprivileged group in Indian society.

  • In the half dressed case, the first case, four men of a higher caste have been arrested.

  • Here's a dollar activist and lawyer.

  • This case is about cast on this case is about cast supremacy on.

  • Did they have committed this offense just to teach a lesson to this particular family?

  • Because as a Dalit family and as a a Dalit girl, she was not supposed to assert her right, not even as equal citizens, but even as a human being.

  • Well, the case has a political dimension to Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi.

  • A Mukherjee has more on this.

  • Now this state is governed by the BJP, which is the principal party in the state, and also it is the party that governs the center as well so they will stop on.

  • This is being seen as a bigger political tussle between the two parties as one party tries to make this into a larger political issue, attacking the BJP for what they say has an been a case that has been completely mishandled on the BJP, trying to defend itself by pushing any kind of political opposition on this and the kind of visual that came in where Rahul Gandhi, the senior Congress leaders actually falling to the ground at one point because of the scuffle with a man in uniform, the Congress Party extremely livid, saying that this is not how the government should suppress any kind of dissent.

  • My colleague, they're talking about Rahul Gandhi.

  • His sister, Priyanka Gandhi, also spoke to the press.

  • Three government will have to take responsibility for the safety of women, the government will have to take responsibility.
