As the young paramedical student battles for life bravely four days after the brutal gangrape, and the nation is outraged over the heinous crime, the inmates of Tihar jail, where the rape accused have been lodged, are also giving the main accused a hard time.
India Today cited a source that revealed that the main accused in the Delhi gangrape case was not only beaten up by the jail inmates but was also forced to consume human excreta and urine. Post the attack on rapecase’s main accused, Mukesh, the jail authorities are planning to shift him to a separate cell.
Today morning, the girl’s male friend, an engineer in a software company who was in the bus, had identified Mukesh, one of the six accused, during TIP (Test Identification Parade) at Tihar jail, a senior police official said.
Eleven people were paraded before him during TIP which started at 3:05 PM and lasted for an hour. “The procedures ended by 4 PM,” the official said. Of the six accused, four have been arrested, one detained and another remains at large.
Concerned over the health of the girl who was gang-raped in a moving bus on Sunday night, students including from Jawaharlal Nehru University(JNU) poured into Safdarjung hospital and held a candlelight vigil.
Like yesterday, the Capital again witnessed a series of protests in front of Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit’s residence India Gate and Safdarjang hospital.
Dikshit said both central and Delhi governments want to take the girl to any part of the world for better treatment when her condition improves.
At Safdarjung hospital, young girls in small groups also came to express solidarity with the victim and wanted to meet her in the ICU.
Around 150 medical aspirants with their mouth tied with black cloth held a protest outside the hospital demanding justice for the victim. As dusk fell, a candlelight vigil was staged in from of the hospital.
A day after Government announced measures in a bid to restore confidence of women in the wake of the dastardly crime, Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said it is pressing for punishment for the accused so that it becomes a “deterrent” for others.
