'Sickening to say the least': Pooja Bhatt on Badaun gangrape

Pooja Bhatt on Wednesday reacted to the gruesome incident of the alleged gangrape and murder of a 50-year-old woman in Badaun district of Uttar Pradesh.

"When will this violence against women end? This is sickening to say the least. Is there no place in our country, especially in UP, where a woman is safe?" Pooja tweeted.

Expressing her concern, Pooja wrote in a separate tweet: "We seem to care as little about humans-women in particular as we do about animals. The laws against all forms of violence need to become more stringent. All this suppressed anger and frustration that permeates society is manifesting in vile, horrific ways."

Meanwhile, the National Commission for Women (NCW) has taken cognisance of media reports on the incident. As per the reports, the crime took place when the woman had gone to a temple to offer prayers.
