Kerala student rape: Nadda highlights deteriorating law, order situation to EC

New Delhi : Union Health Minister J.P. Nadda on Thursday spoke to the Election Commission in connection with the rape and murder case of a law student in Kerala and expressed concern over the deteriorating law and order situation in the Congress-ruled state.

“We talked to the Election Commission about the law student’s rape matter, a case worse than the Nirbhaya case and expressed deep concern about the deteriorating law and order situation in Kerala,” Nadda told the media here.

“We also informed the Election Commission about the atrocities faced by Dalit community in the state and that the police got active after our leaders raised the issue in Parliament,” he added.

Earlier this week, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) took suo motu cognizance of media reports about yet another ‘Nirbhaya’ like rape and murder of a Dalit law student.

The 29-year-old law student was brutally raped and murdered on April 28.

Her body had at least 30 injuries, including on the private parts. Reportedly, the assault on her stomach was such that the small intestine had spilled out. (ANI)
