When the 19-year-father old’s arrived to pick up her body for final rites at the mortuary in Srinagar’s Pauri Garwhal area, there was a riot outside. On September 25, 2022, in Srinagar’s Pauri Garhwal district, protesters blocked the Rishikesh-Badrinath route in response to the murder of a teenage girl.
The family of the 19-year-old receptionist who was killed in Uttarakhand earlier this month has criticised the government’s handling of the matter and refused to have her body cremated. The woman’s kin protested by blocking a highway and are asking that the autopsy results be made public. The family expressed concern over the government’s decision to tear down the resort and claimed that it was done so to obliterate the case’s evidence.
Following the arrest of a BJP leader’s son for the alleged murder of a 19-year-old in the Uttarakhand district of Pauri, the opposition began to criticise the government of Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami. Despite promises of harsh punishment, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) announced planning a demonstration outside the BJP headquarters in Delhi and Congress to demand PM Modi’s apology to the nation.
The Uttarakhand administration was questioned about the adolescent murder case by Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. She urged the state administration to conduct the investigation seriously and sensitively in a tweet demanding justice. Expelled BJP leader Vinod Arya, the father of the main accused in Uttarakhand receptionist’s murder case, described his son Pulkit Arya as a Seedha sadha balak (simple boy). Arya denied all allegations against Pulkit Arya and claimed his son was innocent.
The postmortem report must be made public, according to the grieving parents of the deceased receptionist. Saturday morning, BJP MP Tirath Singh phoned the family to offer his condolences to the parents. Ritu Khanduri, the leader of the Uttarakhand Assembly, called the family on Sunday as well. However, the family is adamant about making the autopsy report public out of concern for fraud.
