New Delhi: Nirbhaya gang-rape and murder victim's mother, Asha Devi, on Wednesday met the family of the 20-year-old woman, who died after being hit by a car in the Kanjhawala area of the national capital.
Asha Devi has urged the authorities to investigate the case and financially support the family. She also said that a job should be given to a family member as soon as possible.
I do not support that (Nidhi) girl: Nirbhaya's mother
"I request authorities to investigate the case and support the family financially. The job should be given to the family member as soon as possible. I do not level allegations on anyone but I do not support what that girl (Nidhi) has said in her statement," said Nirbhaya's mother.
Anjali's friend Nidhi, who was on the pillion seat at the time of the incident, on Tuesday had said that the men knew the girl has got stuck under their car, still they kept dragging her.
"After the car hit us, I fell to one side. My friend got stuck under the car. The men knew that the girl had got stuck under their car, still, they deliberately kept dragging her," she said.
Nidhi said that Anjali was in an inebriated state but still insisted on driving the two-wheeler.
"It is the fault of the girl who was driving in an inebriated state. I insisted to her so much that don't drive, I am alert, let me drive. She didn't believe me and believed herself," Nidhi added.
Delhi Dy CM meets victim's family
Earlier in the day, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia visited the residence of the 20-year-old woman.
"It is a horrific incident. The 20-year-old was the only earning member of the family. She had siblings and the entire incident is saddening," said Manish Sisodia after meeting the family.
Sisodia said that earlier Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had met with the deceased's mother and assured her that her medical treatment would be taken care of. The deceased's mother is reportedly suffering from Kidney related ailments and is undergoing dialysis treatment.
"Delhi CM met with the deceased's mother and assured her that whatever medical treatment is required will be provided by the Delhi government. The Delhi government will take after her dialysis treatment," said Sisodia.
He further said that the Delhi government would help in providing jobs to a member of the family.
