SHOCKING! NCW member shames Budaun gangrape victim for going out alone in evening, then withdraws statement (VIDEO)

New Delhi: National Commission for Women member Chandramukhi Devi on Thursday made a bizarre statement on  Badaun gang-rape and murder case.

that the gangrape and murder of a 50-year-old woman in Badaun, Uttar Pradesh, could have been avoided if she had not stepped out alone in the evening. The video of her statement has been widely circulated on social media.

“Women should not go out at odd times under the influence of any person,” Devi told reporters. “I think this incident would not have occurred if the woman had not stepped out of her house alone or had she been accompanied by a [male] child of the family.”

According to police, the 50-year-old woman, who was an Anganwadi worker, was gang-raped and murdered in the Ughaiti area of Uttar Pradesh’s Badaun district when she had gone to a temple on Sunday evening. The post-mortem report of the deceased confirmed rape, injury in her private parts, and fracture in her legs.

An FIR was registered against three accused, including a priest at the Ughaiti police station under Section 376 (d) and 302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Two of the accused persons were arrested on Wednesday, while the priest is still absconding.

The police station in-charge was also suspended for the negligence of the duty as the family of the deceased had alleged police apathy for the delay caused in filing the FIR in the case.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath directed authorities to take the strongest legal action against the accused and instructed ADG Zone, Bareilly to submit a report. He also instructed the UP Special Task Force to assist in the investigation.
