New Delhi: The gruesome killing of 16-year-old Sakshi at the hands of Sahil in Delhi's Shahbad Dairy has left the nation in shock. Now, reacting to the incident, BJP MP Hans Raj Hans has said that 'youth often get caught up in emotions'. Calling the incident an unfortunate one he said, "Earlier there have been same cases in my constituency. I am in touch with Police and the family members of the victim. Youth often get caught up in emotions."
The accused, Sahil, who has been identified as an AC mechanic in Shahbad Dairy area, was arrested and taken to Delhi by cops for the brutal murder of Sakshi, his 16-year-old girl friend. Sahil stabbed Sakshi multiple times and crushed her head with a boulder in New Delhi's Shahbad Dairy area on Sunday. A case under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code was earlier registered at Shahbad Dairy police station on the basis of the complaint lodged by the victim's father.
Delhi BJP calls it case of 'love jihad'
The Delhi BJP on Monday claimed the gruesome stabbing of a minor girl in the Shahabad Dairy area of northwest Delhi was a case of "love jihad", and slammed the AAP for "trying to portray" it as an "ordinary" murder and a law and order issue.
In a statement, Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva said the case should be tried in a fast track court.
No reaction was immediately available from the AAP over BJP's charge. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal issued a statement on Twitter earlier.
"A minor girl was brutally murdered in Delhi. This is very sad and unfortunate. The criminals have become fearless, there is no fear of the police. L-G sir, law and order is your responsibility, do something," he said in his tweet in Hindi.
