“The rape incident of a minor girl that has occurred the other day has ashamed the humanity. The perpetrators of the heinous crime should be given exemplary punishment. The society should come out against such cases and other heinous crimes against the women. It is unarguably a monstrous crime that needs to be deplored by all notwithstanding caste or other considerations in the strongest terms,” he said.
Sagar impressed on the need of having the case tried by fast track court. He added that it is the time for society to rise above all political and other considerations and show solidarity with the victim and her family.
