      #JusticeForKajal: 19 Year-Old Dalit Girl Raped & Murdered; Riteish Deshmukh Says 'Hang The Culprits'


      In a shocking incident in north Gujarat, a 19 year-old Dalit girl was allegedly kidnapped, gangraped and murdered before her body was hanged from a tree to make it look like a suicide.


      According to a report in The Hindu, the victim had gone missing on December 31, 2019, after which her family had approached the police to lodge a first information report. However, the cops refused to lodge an FIR. The report states that local police inspector NL Rabari told the family that the girl was safe and had eloped with a boy of the same community and that both had got married. Hence, no case was required to be lodged, they said. However, the girl's body was found hanging on a tree on January 5.

Forget what religion she belonged to, forget what caste she belonged to.. just remember she was a young girl with an entire life of hope and aspirations ahead of her. Hang the culprits publicly. #JusticeForKajal."
