Rape victim’s family to get free legal aid


Gurugram-based NGO Frishtey will provide free legal aid to the family of a 10-year-old girl who was gang-raped and murdered by three men.
The victim was lured and abducted from a slum near Tau Devi Lal Botanical Garden in Sector 52 here on January 16 and was found dead in a building under construction in Saraswati Kunj on January 24.

Gurugram Bar Association former President Kulbhushan Bhardwaj, also part of Frishtey, told IANS that they decided to provide all legal help to the family without charging money.

Police on Monday arrested Mukhtar Ali (30), Aijaz Malik (26) and Jaleel (22) from Sector 43 for the crime. According to the FIR, Ali was known to the victim’s family.

On January 8, Gurugram Additional Session Judge Vivek Singhak sentenced two people to life imprisonment for throwing acid on a woman. That case too was fought by Frishtey for free.
