Protest for speedy action in the Delhi gang rape case

The Central Executive Committee of the Democratic Youth Federation of India decided to, observe protest day on 24th of December, 2012 against the passive response of the Central and Delhi governments towards the demands of the general public for speedy action in the gang rape case. The Delhi police while amazingly passive in ensuring peoples’ safety is so vigorously unleashing brutal assault on protesting people in Delhi.

The main demands of the DYFI are:1) Setting up fast track courts in rape and other cases of violence against women. 2) Punishment of police officials guilty of delaying filing FIRs in cases of sexual crimes.3) Speedy passage of the Bill pending with the government for the Prevention of Sexual Assault in the Workplace.4) For rehabilitation measures for the rape victims. 5) Effective measures by the central government and state government to curtail increase in crimes against women etc

The brutal rape and torture occurred on16th night when the woman and her friend after watching a movie boarded a private bus at Munirka in south Delhi to go to Dwarka in west Delhi. The woman was beaten up and raped by at least six men inside the bus.

All those who wish to raise their voice, and express their support and show of protest and solidarity with the rape survivor who is fighting a grim battle for her life are requested to join in protest programmes that will be held across the country on 24th.

The DYFI calls upon all the youth and other sections of the society to raise their voice against all sorts of, sexual and other, violence against women and it also urges upon the Central and State Governments to take adequate effective measures ensuring the safety of women and to undertake measures to make police personnel as well as general public more gender sensitive.
