On 26th January, on the occasion of Republic Day in different parts of Nation events took place. But, in a function what happened in function in Haryana is really wrong. The Former Haryana Director General of Police SPS Rathore is accused of molesting a 14-year-old Ruchika Girhotra at his home office in Panchkula on August 12, 1990.
After the incident, she with her friend went to inform the police about the incident. But, just three years after the whole incident she committed suicide due to alleged harassment by the police.
Well, in an event that took place he was a guest and was sitting on the stage. He was seated near the Superintendent on the front row, in the district level parade and even took the guard of honor, as per reported by Times of India.
A member of the victim’s family said “It is shameful and disgraceful that Haryana Government felt the need to express solidarity with such molesters. We have no words to describe how we feel. We still can’t believe the Haryana Administration did this”.
The victim’s friend told Hindustan Times “He (Rathore) must have been invited to the function. It is shameless on the part of the local administration. By endorsing such criminals, who have been convicted by the Supreme Court, the administration is directly encouraging such crimes”
The administration didn’t say anything about the whole incident. However, a senior official has quoted the invitation as a mistake.
