The outrage in Delhi, over the alleged gangrape of a 23-year-old paramedical student, spread to Haryana with protests being reported from Jind, Hisar, Rohtak, Bhiwani, Sirsa and Karnal districts on Sunday. NGOs and students of colleges and universities, from across the state, took to the streets demanding stern action against those involved in crimes against women.
The protesters demanded the death penalty for people who commit rapes and condemned the Centre and the Delhi police for cane charging protesters at India Gate in Delhi on Saturday. They also demanded that the Delhi government suspend police officers, who had ordered the lathicharge in Delhi.
The organisations, which spearheaded the protests in Haryana, included the Jan Sangharsh Samiti, Janvadi Mahila Samiti, Students Federation of India, CITU, among others.
"People who commit such heinous crimes against women should be hanged till death. The government must enact this law to act as a deterrent," said Phool Singh Sheokand, president Jan Sangharsh Samiti.
