The Hathras gang rape in Uttar Pradesh has put the whole country in shock since the 19-year-old victim died. Reacting to this horrific incidence, Bollywood celebrities have now come forward to share their views and called this a matter of shame and demanded the hanging of the guilty or shoot on the spot.
The 19-year-old woman named Manisha Valmiki died on Tuesday in Delhi two weeks after she was gang-raped and tortured in Uttar Pradesh's Hathras. The woman died in Delhi's Safdarjung Hospital yesterday morning. She had suffered multiple fractures, paralysis, and a gash in her tongue in the horrific assault that drew parallels to the 2012 Nirbhaya gang-rape.
Celebs like Kangana Ranaut, Akshay Kumar, Abhisekh Bachchan, Anushka Sharma, and many others got furious on social media and demanded justice for the victim. While Anushka Sharma wants punishment for this inhuman act, Kangana Ranaut wants rapists to be shot dead on the spot just like the rapists of Priyanka Reddy were shot.
Anushka wrote on her Instagram story, " The horrific story of Hathras gang rape has devastated me ... I sincerely hope that strictest punishment is given to the barbaric men who have carried out such a horrific, inhuman act on a young life and caused her family irreparable pain"
Piqued by the matter, Kangana said, "Shoot these rapists publicly, what is the solution to these gang rapes that are growing in numbers every year? What a sad and shameful day for this country. Shame on us we failed our daughters #RIPManishaValmiki"
Abhishek Bachchan claimed this incidence beyond disgusted and wrote, " THIS MUST STOP!!!!
#Hathras Beyond disgusted."
Akshay Kumar also took to Twitter to react and tweeted, " Angry & Frustrated!Such brutality in #Hathras gangrape.When will this stop?Our laws & their enforcement must be so strict that the mere thought of punishment makes rapists shudder with fear!Hang the culprits.Raise ur voice to safeguard daughters & sisters-its the least we can do"
Other celebrities like Farhan Akhtar, Kunal Kohli, Ritesh Deshmukh, and Richa Chadda also shared their reactions on
The four accused have already been arrested by Hathras police under IPS sections 307 and ST/SC Act, IPC section 376 D (charges for gang-rape) and IPC section 302 (punishment for murder).
