July 1: Father of the eight-year-old who was brutally raped in Madhya Pradesh’s Mandsaur has refused to accept the compensation announced by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan rather demanded death sentence for the accused, suggesting that capital punishment was the only option for their heinous crime.
I don’t want any compensation, I just want the accused to be hanged, said the father of the eight-year-old girl who was allegedly gang-raped in Mandsaur, Madhya Pradesh.

On June 26, a minor girl was abducted from her school in Hafiz Colony and allegedly gang-raped at her house in Mandsaur.
The government said that Rs. 5 lakh has been transferred to the girl’s father account. “The Chief Minister has transferred Rs. 5 lakhs in the victim’s father’s account. Hope police find the accused very soon so that can be hanged. The State government will take care of her health and education,” Women and Child Development Minister Archana Chitnis said.
The mother of one of the accused has demanded for a CBI probe in the case. “I trust he is innocent. A CBI inquiry should be conducted in the case. If he is found guilty he should be severely punished,” the mother said.
