The accused identified as Satish Rai had thrown kerosene over her body and put it on fire

In a video statement to the police, Gulnaz said,

“I was going to throw garbage around 6 pm when Satish Rai, son of Vinay Rai poured kerosene over me and set me ablaze with a match stick”.

According to the details, Satish was harassing her and pressurizing her for marriage. Gulnaz requested him to not pressurize her.

It has been more than two weeks since the incident took place, and the accused haven’t been found or punished.

People are demanding justice for the poor girl. Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut also demanded justice for Gulnaz and said,

“Our daughters are not safe, everyday there are bigger and even more heinous crimes against them unfold.”

“Dear liberals I have a request don’t look at victims or criminals through your secular lens. At least don’t divide them, Let’s fight against injustice together.”
