Punjab horror: BJP slams Rahul, Priyanka Gandhi over 6-yr-old's rape-murder case

A political war of words broke out over the alleged rape and murder of the 6-year-old child of a migrant labourer in Punjab.

The Bharatiya Janata Party cited the reaction of Congress leaders to a similar crime in Uttar Pradesh's Hathras.

While Nirmala Sitharaman said that rapes shouldn't be politicised, her colleague in the Union Cabinet, Prakash Javadekar questioned why Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi hadn't visited the victim's family in Punjab, like Hathras.

Responding to the attacks, Rahul Gandhi tweeted that the governments in Congress-ruled Punjab and Rajasthan are not denying rape or blocking justice.
