Over a fortnight, no arrests: Activists protest ‘police inaction’ in Sultanpur rape case: UP

Sabrang Staff 27 Sep 2019

Activists beg the question – “‘Why are the authorities silent?”




No arrests have yet been made in the heinous rape and murder of a girl in Sultanpur, UP. The body of the girl was found on September 10, grievously mutilated and hung from a tree in the Baijapur village of the district. The villagers out to weed the fields in the morning, witnessed the horrible image and immediately alerted the local police about the matter.

However, a fortnight later, no arrests have been made in the matter. The police have been tight-lipped about the incident since day one for the fear of the intensity of the crime causing a furore about the public. Furthermore, they have not even been able to identify the victim in all this time.



Though the police have kept its silence on the issue, the cause to deliver justice to the victim has been taken up by women and human rights organizations in the State.

On Thursday, members of the political party of CPI(M), Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI), All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA) and the Student’s Federation of India (SFI) along with advocates and other activists, demanded a judicial enquiry in the matter along with the conviction of the negligent police officers investigating the case.



It is disappointing to see that the police have treated this matter with such flippancy what with delaying the post-mortem and losing crucial evidence.

Whether these protests will take steam and compel the police to speed up its probe and bring the offenders to book remains to be seen.

What is the Ram Temple REALLY about?

For the many who do not know what the original Ram Temple movement is and the many who may have forgotten the mayhem, eminent activist and journalist Teesta Setalvad presents a ready reckoner on what the Ram Temple movement really is about and why has it been so conveniently resurrected, twenty six years later in 2018.
