"This is shocking": NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma on Shahbad murder case
New Delhi: National Commission for Women chairperson Rekha Sharma on Monday described the murder of a minor girl in New Delhi's Shahbad Dairy area as a shocking incident and said that the judiciary should take this matter to a fast-track court and announce the verdict as soon as possible.
While talking to ANI, NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma said, "It is very shocking news and a very painful incident. I saw the video. No one who was near the incident spot came to her rescue. After 20 hours the accused was caught." She further stated that even an uneducated person can never be so cruel and commit such a crime.
"Even an uneducated person can never be so cruel that he ends up killing someone like this. It does not depend on the level of education one has obtained, it depends on how one is raised by the family, the societal norms, how his thought process was developed. We should look at these factors," she said.
