No lawyer will help any accused in Haryana topper gangrape case
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has directed the police to take stringent action against one of the accused who was arrested on Sunday in the alleged gang-rape incident in Rewari. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has also spoken to Khattar.
Speaking to the media in Jammu, Rajnath Singh said, “I have spoken to Haryana Chief Minister who has assured me of taking appropriate action in the case.” Last week, 19-year-old college student was allegedly abducted, sedated and gang-raped in Haryana’s Narnaul area.
The FIR registered at Kanina identifies three accused – Pankaj, Manish and Nishu. While Nishu has been arrested, Pankaj, who is a Defence personnel stationed in Rajasthan, and Manish are yet to be arrested. Addressing the media in Karnal, Khattar assured that the remaining two accused in the case would also be arrested soon. He warned that strict action would be taken if anyone was found harbouring them. “Police have been directed to take strict action in the case. The other two accused in the case will also be arrested soon. I appeal to the public not to harbour them. Strict legal action will be taken against those who harbour them,” the chief minister said.
