Statesman News Service | Meerut |

The police came in the ire of women activists in the case of self immolation of a fourteen year old girl with activists demanding stern action against errant cops.

Sakshi, an eighth standard student, was compelled to take the extreme step due to stalking and rape threats by four boys. She passed away during treatment on Thursday.

The police was accused of cooking up a fake story when they claimed the girl had relations with the boys.

Ridiculing the police, a group of women activists led by Atul Sharma, president of Sankalp organisation raised their voice demanding action against the errant cops.

“We condemn the incident and attempt of police for tarnishing the character of the deceased girl instead of accepting that stalking provoked the girl to take such drastic step,” said Atul Sharma.

Raising questions on the working of Bhawanpur police in this case Sharma said that why they didn’t record the statement of the girl. The women activists are now planning to approach senior police officials with request to lodge case against the errant SHO Kartar Singh and his sub ordinate Sub Inspector.

The family members as well as the villagers too expressed their disappointment with the investigation .Reportedly, BJP MP Rajendra Aggarwal criticized police over its shoddy investigation into the case and conveyed the same to the senior officials.
