Remember Ankita Bhandari’s murder? Women shave their head demanding justice for her

Even after a year of the murder of Ankita Bhandari in Devbhoomi, Uttarakhand, the wait for justice continues. In this case, women are demanding justice by shaving their heads, and their struggle and determination behind this deserves praise.

The demand of the CBI to investigate the murder of Ankita Bhandari is being repeated, but there is no news of justice in this case yet. State President of Mahila Congress Jyoti Rautela and General Secretary shaved their heads, and along with this many women workers marched to the Chief Minister’s residence demanding justice.

Jyoti Rautela has consistently urged both the state and central governments to request a CBI investigation into the Ankita Bhandari murder case. However, to date, Ankita’s family has not received justice. State Congress Committee President Karan Mahara said, the Ankita murder case is a shameful incident for humanity and tarnishes the identity of Devbhoomi Uttarakhand. For this, the culprits should be given a death sentence, so that those who commit such crimes can learn a lesson.

The state is currently facing a significant breakdown in law and order. There is a concerning rise in incidents of violence against women, even as the government under the BJP banner promotes the slogan of “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao”. He said that the names of all the people involved in this heinous criminal incident should be disclosed. In this regard, the Congress party has demanded an investigation by the CBI. However, the Uttarakhand government is hesitant to conduct a CBI investigation to save its people.

Ankita Bhandari’s death has created a stir in the entire state, because it is an incident that is tarnishing the identity of humanity. The accused of this brutality should be given strict punishment so that he stops committing such crimes due to fear of punishment.

Bhandari, who worked as a receptionist at Vananthara Resort, Rishikesh, was allegedly murdered by her boss Pulkit Arya, and two of his associates last year after she asked him to provide “extra services” to a ‘VIP’ guest. Had opposed putting pressure on. Pulkit Arya’s father Vinod Arya was a BJP leader who was expelled from the party after his son’s name surfaced as the main accused in the case.
