Hang those guilty of gang rape: Bengal girl's family

New Delhi, Jan 7 : The family of a 16-year-old girl who was gang raped and later allegedly set ablaze in Madhyamgram in West Bengal Tuesday met President Pranab Mukherjee and demanded death for the guilty.


"The president assured that he will do whatever he can to ease our pain. We want the guilty to be hanged till death and nothing less," the father of the girl told IANS outside Rashtrapati Bhavan after meeting Mukherjee.

"We are getting death threats in Bengal and if anything happens to us, the chief minister (Mamata Banerjee) would be responsible for not protecting us," added the girl's brother-in-law.

The family was accompanied by Communist Party of India-Marxist leaders Sitaram Yechury and Brinda Karat, who demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inquiry into the matter.
