Chandigarh, 22 December, 2013. Mr. Satya Pal Jain, Ex-City MP and National Chairman of the Committee on Legal and Election Commission Issues of the BJP has urged the Union Home Minister Sh. Sushil Kumar Shinde to immediately visit Chandigarh to assess and have the first hand information of the severely deteriorating law and order situation in Chandigarh and also to transfer the investigation of both the incidents; one of kidnapping, rape and murder of a 11 year old girl of Palsora and the other of the rape by 5 police constables of a minor girl of Khudda Lahora to the CBI so that proper investigation into these heinous crimes can be done and the accused are awarded the punishment of death, at the earliest.
In a letter to Sh. Shinde, Sh. Jain said that the culprits of rape of a minor girl of Khudda Lahora could be identified because the victim is alive and the local BJP councillor came to her help and brought the matter in public domain. Unfortunately, in the other case, the innocent 11 years old girl of Palsora was murdered after being kidnapped and raped. Mr. Jain said that people have started doubting as to whether it were some policemen only who were involved in the kidnapping, rape and murder of this girl also and could not be identified because the victim was murdered before the incident came to the limelight. He said that the fact that police has not been able to trace the culprits for the last 15 days is also strengthening the apprehension of the people.
Mr. Jain said that both these incidents are slur on the rulers of Chandigarh and the faith of the common man has been completely shaken in the Central Government, the Local Administration and the police. He said that in this situation, it is necessary that the investigation of both the crimes is done by the CBI to nab all the culprits and get them convicted as early as possible.
Mr. Jain said that Chandigarh being a Union territory comes directly under the Union Government. As such the conduct of the Union Home Minister of silently watching these most heinous crimes, while sitting in Delhi, without doing anything concrete is most condemnable.
