New Delhi (03/12/2019): Delhi Women’s Commission Chairperson Swati Maliwal has sat on indefinite hunger strike this Tuesday morning.

The main demand of Swati Maliwal is for a law to hang the rapists within 6 months and make the system fit and responsible.

Speaking to Ten News, Swati Maliwal said, ‘We are demanding from the Prime Minister that rapists of young children or women should be punished with the harshest. There are laws in the country but not being implemented and are not applicable because neither police resources are being increased, nor police accountability is being fixed and neither fast track courts are being made. The last time I went on a hunger strike, I was assured but it was not implemented till date. Therefore, till the time I will not see it applied before my eyes, till then I will not step back from hunger strike, even if I lose my life. ‘

The Delhi Police, however, said that it had not turned down the demand for the demonstration. Seeking to clarify the case, the police said it has written a letter to DCW seeking information regarding the details of the demonstration, means of transport, management of microphones and the number of protesters involved. Also, a copy of the affidavit has also been sought which has to be filled as per the Supreme Court guidelines.
