Last month, Sharma had said that the NCW, mandated to improve the lot of women and empower them, was a “toothless and cash-starved” organisation.
Delhi Commission for Women chairperson Barkha Shukla Singh was also shocked and surprised that the accused hanged himself inside the high-security jail. “As far as I know, he was being kept in a separate barrack. So, I feel that it is a very surprising and raises questions on the police authorities,” she said.
The lawyers of the accused and his kin are suspecting a foul play and have alleged that Ram Singh was murdered and have demanded a CBI probe into the incident.
It may be recalled that Ram Singh was the driver of the bus in which the girl was raped. Singh’s brother Mukesh was driving the bus when Nirbhaya was sexually assaulted by the accused and his five other associates.
