Karat accuses Haryana govt of apathy towards rape victims

CPI(M) leader Brinda Karat Sunday attacked Haryana's Bhupinder Singh Hooda government for its alleged apathy towards rape victims and demanded that they be provided legal, financial and medical aid and rehabilitated properly. "There are around 20 cases which are six to eight months old. Leave alone they being sent to the court, even FIRs have not been registered in many of them and accused have not been arrested so far as most of the victims are from poor Dalit families. Haryana government has done nothing except for giving assurances," she told reporters at a public hearing on rape cases organised by several women right's group here at Jantar Mantar.
