As reported by Times Of India, a 12-year-old girl was allegedly assaulted and raped at knife point when she was returning home, after attending Independence Day celebrations at her school. The incident occurred in Chandigarh city inside the Children Traffic Park in Sector 23.

The girl who was subjected to the disgusting crime was a student of Class VIII in a Government school.

Following the news, actress Divyanka Tripathi took to Twitter to express her fear and shock at the gruesome incident. She tweeted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi questioning his ‘Beti Bachao Campaign’.

क्या बेटी बचाओ? अब बेटी को बचाओ।
बेटे की चाहत नहीं,पर अब डरती हूँ बेटी पैदा करने से। क्या कहूँगी,क्यूँ उसे स्वर्ग से नर्क की दहशत में धकेला?

The ‘Yeh hai Mohabbattein’ actress, in a series of tweets, wrote that she is scared of having a girl child because of the social state of women in India.

The actress appealed to the Prime Minister to grant severe punishments to culprits who are a menace to women’s security and the society.

It seems that Divyanka Tripathi has been jolted by the incident as are all of us. Women security has been a huge matter of concern in recent times, where fresh reports of assault and rape have shaken the country awake from the deep slumber of patriarchal norms. The question of the hour, however, is how many appeals and decades will it take for women to finally feel safe in India?
