The whole country is angry with the tragedy that occurred with a Dalit girl in Hathras. Demand for hanging those who have gone out with the girl is rising. A photo is circulating on social media, stating that it is a gang-raped girl. But the image shown is Manisha from Chandigarh.
Manisha Yadav died of illness two years ago. Unknowingly, injustice is being done to Chandigarh’s daughter and her family members. Not only the common public, but even big celebrities are engaged in making Chandigarh’s picture of Manisha viral.
People of the country may be expressing their condolences by posting pictures of Manisha on social media, but the family members of Manisha have to bear the brunt of this. The wounds of the father are fresh again, trying to forget the sorrow of his young daughter leaving.
Manisha’s father Mohan Lal Yadav said that he is deeply saddened that he is being slandered even after his daughter’s death. Mohan Lal on Wednesday gave a complaint in this regard to the SSP of Chandigarh and said that pictures of his daughter should be prevented from going viral on social media. If someone is doing this, then action should be taken against them.
Had stone disease
Manisha Yadav’s family lives in Ramdarbar Colony. Manisha was married on 21 June 2018. He had the stone disease and this disease increased day by day. Manisha died on 22 July 2018.
Advocate Anil Gogna said that it is a punishable offence to make public any information about the rape victim. Those doing so can be prosecuted under section 228 (a) of the IPC. Under this section, there is a provision of punishment and fine of up to two years for the culprits. Police will be demanded to investigate the matter.
