The recent incident in Pandav Nagar, Delhi, in which a man attempted to kidnap a 19-year-old girl and threatened to throw acid at her when she refused, has reignited outrage and calls for justice in the national capital. This follows the tragic death of Anjali Singh, who was dragged by a car for 13 kilometers, and another attack in which a 17-year-old girl was left with serious injuries after being attacked with acid by two men on a bike in Dwarka.
The repeated instances of such violence have left the community feeling unsafe and desperate for action to be taken. The Delhi Police have registered a case and are conducting an investigation into the Pandav Nagar incident. It is imperative that justice is served in these cases and that measures are put in place to ensure the safety and security of all individuals in the community.
Swati Maliwal, a prominent figure in the fight for justice and safety in the community, has expressed outrage at the recent incident. She said “Till now the country is debating the painful death of Anjali and news of another brutality has come in Delhi’s Pandav Nagar area. A man tried to drag the girl inside his car and threatened to burn her with acid if she resisted. The girl has also got injuries. How long will it run?”
Swati Maliwal, the head of the Delhi Commission for Women, has issued a notice to the Delhi Police regarding an attempted abduction of a girl in Pandav Nagar.
The repeated occurrences of such violence have raised serious concerns about the safety of individuals in the community and have prompted calls for action to be taken to address the issue.
