Hundreds of people demanded justice for the 19-year-old Dalit girl, Kajal who was gang-raped and murdered in Gujarat’s Saira village.
In Gujarat’s Modasa, a 19-year-old Dalit girl was found hanging from a banyan tree in Saira village days after she went missing. The girl’s family alleged that the police refused to file an FIR on January 1st, the day the girl went missing when they were approached by the family members. The girl’s sister revealed that the girl was lifted into a car by Bimal Bharwad warning her to not speak to anyone about the incident. A CCTV also confirmed the statement. The inspector had informed the family on January 3rd that she had married a boy from their community and will return soon and said that it was not in their jurisdiction the next day, as per a report published on The Wire. It was on January 5th that her body was found hanging by a priest, which was identified by her grandfather. The girl’s grandfather filed an FIR against Bimal and the family refused to take the body of the girl from the Ahmedabad civil hospital until the culprits were arrested. Hundreds of people joined them in their protest outside the civil hospital demanding justice by arresting the culprits and also suspending the police officers.
Twitterati shared their rage and anger in the rape and murder of a 19-year-old Dalit girl from Gujarat:
Complete silence of mainstream media on heinous rape and murder. Because it's Gujarat and the victim is a dalit? Sanghis are not angry, Rubika Liyaqat is not crying. Even liberals are silent.#JusticeForKajal https://t.co/2TBgltNIyo

A Dalit woman who was kidnapped, gang raped, murdered and hanged by dominant castes men in Gujarat. By the upper caste, taken out to rally to save criminals No national media coverage as usual because of caste.

Gujarat police is shielding rapists and murderers of a Dalit Girl who was hung from a tree.
Gujarat CM isn't opening his mouth about this injustice.
Modia is as always maintaining pin-drop silence.
No 'Gujarati Asmita' when Dalits and Tribals suffer Modiji? https://t.co/RJjTOvKMvk

Still no one arrested and no any action from Gujarat Police, It's Gujrat model…. Kidnap,rape and murders. Gujarat police took four days to register a FIR for this horrific incidence. As a responsible and unbiased Police officer, take necessary action. #JusticeForKajal pic.twitter.com/C8wxyaS6py

Shame on Hindi English mainstream media for ignoring Dalit girl murder and gang rape.. only Gujarati channels covering it #JusticeForKajal
Do channels see caste of girl before calling her daughter of the nation?@imdevprakash @RamlalAluda @MurariTodabhim @ihansraj @nareshkarodi

19-year-old girl gang raped, murdered, her corpse hanging in between tree branches, and literally no media house is covering this gruesome attack in North Gujarat. Just like the many attacks on women, this too has a caste narrative.

Let's wait and watch who it's perpetrated by. If it turns out to be a Muslim, let's see how many hash tags trend. Suddenly the protest brigade will fall silent#JusticeForKajal

The police are not ready to write a FIR, anyone who accepts the complaint has to agitate for it, fnly the postmortem proves that there was a mass misconduct,and everyone will say that the equality has come?Rape complaints are not taken.Justice is a distraction. #JusticeForKajal pic.twitter.com/OR3PDpcqEJ
