Delhi minor's rape: Akshay Kumar demands death penalty for rapist

As frantic people explode in anger against the brutal rape to which five-year-old Gudiya was recently subjected to, Bollywood fraternity have also voiced their condemnation over the act of violence.

Akshay Kumar, who was born in Delhi, is extremely upset with the recent incident. While speaking to media, he said, “I’m appalled and disgusted by what has happened. And I’m deeply saddened by the fact that it is all happening in the city I grew up in. It’s heart-wrenching to even think about the trauma the poor girl must’ve gone through.”

Akshay, who is also a father of a baby girl, also put forth his concern for daughter Nitara Khanna Bhatia. “It's not just being a Delhiite that makes it worse; it’s being a father that really shatters me, knowing that my worst fear in life is coming true in the city that I ran around in as a child. Just thinking about what that poor girl went through is gut-wrenching for any parent. My heartfelt prayers go out to her family, may she recover and grow to forget this horrendous incident,” he added.

 “Hang the rapist publicly, without further delay; set an example,” he further stated.

“This animalistic behaviour needs to stop. It’s a waste of time to even start the lectures on new laws for women, police reforms etc. We did that a few months back (in December when the Delhi gang-rape incident took place) and clearly it has not worked,” Akshay said.
