A minor girl who was raped allegedly by BSP MLA Purushottam Naresh Dwivedi in Banda finally walked free on Saturday evening following an order from Uttar Pradesh CM Mayawati and Allahabad high court. In its interim order, the HC bench of Justices Imtiyaz Murtaza and S C Agarwal directed the Banda SP to provide adequate security to the victim and her family members. Although judicial work is not done in the High Court on a Saturday, the bench was specially constituted on Justice Murtaza’s request. This is the great kindness of their lordship towards a poor rape victim indeed.
Celebrating her 55th birthday on Saturday Mayawati also showered great affection on the minor to get her release, it is also a good gestures of a woman for a victimized minor girl, very good work for fair sex. The act of Banda MLA is burning example of criminalization of Indian politics, but strong action of Mayawati may console somewhat to victims of criminal politicians, great job by CM.
