Reacting to the horrific rape of two minors at the Benaulim beachside, Benaulim MLA Churchill Alemao expressed that the rapists must be hanged.
- Demanding justice for two minors raped by four accused and seeking assurance from the Goa government over the safety of girls in the state, Alemao, told The Daily Guardian, “This is unfair and shameful. This is the first time anything like this has happened under my watch. I was busy talking to the SP the whole night and told him to deal with it with an iron fist. The police have done their work properly. The rapists should be hanged. I also talked to Auda Veigas and told her to make sure that they are hanged. This is unacceptable.”Alemao goes on to say that he is not the one who sits quietly after an incident like this. “I will raise this matter in the house and will not rest until I succeed. I want to know why the police were not present at that hour of the morning? They are supposed to make sure that curfew is followed. I will also ask for more police force for my constituency so that nothing like this happens again.”
