I was heartbroken and angry over Kathua rape case: Alia

Vastavam web: Joining the growing chorus against the alleged rape and killing of an eight-year-old girl in Kathua, actor Alia Bhatt today said she is heartbroken and angry over the incident. Several Bollywood celebrities have reacted angrily over the incidents and have demanded justice for the victims of the Kathua, Unnao and Surat rape cases that have generated a massive outrage against the perpetrators.”I don’t think only people in Bollywood are upset, I think all over the country people are upset, on a humanitarian level there is anger. It is a disgraceful, shameful and terrible thing that’s happened,” Alia told reporters.

“As a girl, as a woman, as a human being and as a part of the country, I feel very bad and hurt that something like this has happened.” “There was a time when I was reading a lot about it but in the last two days, I have stopped because I thought if I keep reading about it, it’s going to make me more and more upset and angry and really hurt. “I just hope, from my heart, that justice is served. As a country, we should go out there and condemn it because this cannot be happening to us constantly,” she added. Eight persons, including a juvenile, were arrested in the case. The trial in the case began on Monday. In Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao, a teenage girl alleged that she was raped by a ruling BJP MLA who has been arrested by the CBI, which is probing the case.
