Upset over the Dachepalli rape case, Andhra Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu announced that he will act as guardian of a nine-year-old rape victim and will bear all expenses of her education.
He met the victim at government hospital in Guntur and confirmed that he would provide his personal money for her education till she achieves her goal in the life. “I have already asked the District Collector to find the best school in Guntur,” he said.
On the other hand, the state government has simultaneously announced Rs 5 lakh compensation to the family of the victim. CM announced that another Rs 5 lakh would be made fixed deposit on the girl’s name.
He also assured two acres of land for the family for agriculture, a job to her father and house site.
Talking about the details, this innocent nine year old girl has been brutally raped by 50-year-old rickshaw puller last week in Dachepalli in Guntur district.
Due to the public outrage, the accused later committed suicide by hanging to a tree near the village. However, CM stated that the government would have hanged him publicly if he was alive. Naidu further said that there was a need to instill fear in rapists that the day they commit such heinous crime will be their last day on earth. “Only this fear could act as a deterrent,” he added.
He called for conducting rallies in Andhra today with the slogan ‘Let us save the daughters’ and appealed to all people to participate.
