A rape victim from Unnao district in Uttar was on Thursday allegedly set on fire by a group of five men, including one who was accused of the crime. Five men have been arrested in this connection.
According to reports, the woman was on her way to the railway station to catch an early morning train to Rae Bareli when she was stopped by the accused. Then the accused persons hit her head and attacked with a sharp weapon on her neck. As the woman slumped, they poured kerosene on the body and then set her on fire.
Our words show our helplessness: Jaya Bachchan
Jaya Bachchan has alleged that "members are not even allowed to raise important questions in Parliament. We don't know what to do? If we end up using harsh words, questions are raised, but our words show our frustration only," she said.
