Snehalaya Held a Candlelight Vigil & March for Delhi Gang-rape Victim

Ahmednagar (30th Dec.)
Snehalaya held a candlelight vigil & a march here demanding justice for the 23-year-old gang-rape victim who passed away yesterday. Snehalaya's girls, women, activists, along with villagers of Nimblak held the joint march at Nimblak Village Dist. Ahmednagar.  Snehalaya observed silence to mark the death of the young woman and later demanded stringent punishment for the accused.

Snehalaya called for firm & strict action so that such an incident is not repeated in the future. The march started from Gram Panchayat of village Nimblak and proceeded at the same after the whole round of village.

In a condolence message, Anil Gawade, Asst. Secretory of Snehalaya said it’s a wake-up call; she may be our sister or mother if we remain silent after such heinous incidents. Mr. Vilasrao Lamkhede, Sarpanch of village Nimblak said the death of the young woman should prompt the framing of new and strong laws. He also demanded death penalty for the accused, otherwise common people will do it.

All the people observed a two-minute silence in memory of the departed soul and formed a human chain. At the end, 'An oath' was given to present members to avoid such incidents in future & fight with them if it happens again.

Hundreds of local villagers joined the candlelight vigil at village Nimblak to pay tribute to the gang-rape victim. Let’s take a pledge to channelise these emotions and energies into a constructive course of action for a better future.
