Lucknow: The case of the girl student, who fought three molesters and burnt to the death in Varanasi, has reached to the Geneva-based United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC).
 
Then, the appeals to PM Narendra Modi, (who also represents the town in the Lok Sabha), Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and the State police chief went ignored, the NGO in Varanasi -- People’s Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR) wrote to the UNHRC. Besides, the NGO moved towards the National Human Rights Commission and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
 
“Our case has been accepted by the Human Rights Council and Special Procedures Division at the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the United Nations... It has promised to take necessary action,” PVCHR head Lenin Raghuvanshi said.
 
“The accused are still roaming free. The Varanasi police are still to book them. The 20-year-old girl, who was being stalked for the past six months by the three youths, had to pay the price of police inaction with her life... The police did not pay heed to the complaints of the deceased and her family members,” alleged Mr. Raghuvanshi.
