Actress Kangana Ranaut demanded justice for Gulnaz Khatoon, the Bihar teenager who was recently burnt alive in her village on social media on Tuesday. In her post, Kangana stated that daughters are not in our country. She went on to add that people shouldn’t get divided in such issues and they should fight together to eradicate such crimes from the society.
Taking to Twitter, Kangana wrote, “Our daughters are not safe, everyday there are bigger and even more heinous crimes against them unfold. Dear liberals I've a request don't look at victims or criminals through your secular lens. At least don't divide them, Let's fight against injustice together #gulnaz_ko_nyay_do”.
Meanwhile, the accused Chandan Rai has been arrested by Vaishali Police in Bihar. The police informed that efforts are on to nab co-accused Vinay Rai and his son Satish Rai.
Satish had allegedly poured kerosene on Gulnaz Khatoon and set her on fire on October 30 at Rasoolpur Habib village after she resisted eve-teasing. Gulnaz had sustained 75 per cent burn injuries and she succumbed to her injuries during the treatment on Monday.
In her dying statement, she named Satish and his father Vinay and cousin brother Chandan. The video statement of the victim went viral on the social media, wherein she alleged that Satish had set her on fire while Vinay and Chandan helped him in the commission of the crime.
The girl's mother alleged that Satish had threatened her of dire consequences a day before the crime and set her on fire around 5.30 pm on October 30 when she went to dump garbage outside her house.
