New Delhi: Congress on Monday hailed a UP court
decision dismissing a petition against filing of rape case
against 16 policemen in a Bhatta-Parsaul incident, claiming
that it proved that Mayawati-run administration had "committed
atrocities" and demanded stern action against the guilty.
"I thank the honourable court. It has done justice. It
showed that the UP Government had committed atrocities. The
court`s order is to file FIR against those who had ill treated
women. The National Commission for Women had also spoke about
it," party general Secretary Digvijay Singh said.
"Now the CM should take cognisance. She
should realise that to whom she had given protection have now
been exposed. We hope that there will be stern action against
those guilty and they will be suspended," he said.
