Youth Akali Dal (YAD) district president Gurdeep Singh Gosha today said leaders of the ruling Congress ought to come forward and press upon their government to register a case against Atam Nagar MLA and Lok Insaaf Party (LIP) president Simarjit Singh Bains, who is facing r a p e allegations.
Gosha said the leaders of all political parties should come out in support of the victim, who has been struggling for justice for past many months now.
The YAD leader alleged that the local police seemed to be under political pressure because even after producing audio-video proofs against Bains, no action had been taken so far to register a case against him.
“It is time for Congress leaders to come out in support of the victim and prove that the state government will act as per the law and deliver justice. The government, for its own benefit and credibility, ought to act swiftly to prove that no one is above the law,” said Gosha.
He also said the victim was receiving threats on a daily basis but the police were not taking any action. This proved that those in power could get away with anything under the Congress regime, the YAD leader added.
