New Delhi: The brutal and gory killing of a two-and-half-year-old girl in Aligarh has left the entire country stunned and outraged in equal measure. With people from across all walks of life and from different parts of the country demanding the harshest penalty for the accused, Saamana – the Shiv Sena mouthpiece – has reminded the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Uttar Pradesh to stay true to its ‘Beti Bachao’ slogan.
The child was reported missing from Tappal township on May 31 and her mutilated body was eventually found in a garbage dump on June 2. It is reported that two people – Zahid and Aslam – killed the girl after her father failed to repay Rs 10,000 he had borrowed from them. Zahid, Aslam and two other people have been arrested in the case that has shocked the country.
