New Delhi: The family of a 16-year-old Bengal rape victim on Tuesday met President Pranab Mukherjee and demanded death for the guilty. “The president assured that he will do whatever he can to ease our pain. We want the guilty to be hanged till death and nothing less,” the father of the girl.
“We are getting death threats in Bengal and if anything happens to us, the chief minister (Mamata Banerjee) would be responsible for not protecting us,” added the girl’s brother-in-law. They alleged that the West Bengal government was forcing them to leave West Bengal and settle in Bihar.
“We will never leave our home and will keep fighting for justice even if we die in the process,” the father said.
