दिल्ली की 90 वर्षीय महिला को घर से दरिंदा ज़बर्दस्ती उठाके ले गया और बुरी तरह रेप किया। अम्मा को बहुत चोटें आयी हैं। उनसे मिली तो रूह कांप गयी। बहुत रो रही थी और बोली इस दरिंदे को फाँसी दिलाओ!— Swati Maliwal (@SwatiJaiHind) September 8, 2020

DCW Chief Swati Maliwal said, “From a six-month-old girl to a 90-year-old woman, no one is safe in Delhi. The kind of trauma this woman had to face clearly indicates that the perpetrators of these crimes are not humans. I met the woman today, she is an extremely courageous woman. We will ensure she gets justice. This case needs to be fast-tracked and justice should be served within six months.“
