Following the incident, public including women activist broke out in massive protest at the Centre. They complained that the government instead of celebrating their 2 years of power, needs to pay more attention towards holding back violence against women population. Former National Commission for Women (NCW) Nirmala Samant said,
“This needs to be condemned and protested… The government, which is celebrating its two years of governance needs to pay more attention to curbing violence against women.”
Jagmati Sangwan, a women’s rights activist remarked that the law and order in UP has completely collapsed as criminals no more fear the police or punishment.
The police assumes that the body was hung to divert the case from being ruled as murder. Earlier in May 2014, a similar kind of incident, the Badaun case, where 2 teenage sisters of the same family were gang raped and hung from a tree in the Katra village had triggered a public uproar.
