NEW DELHI: Amidst the nationwide uproar and protest against the 26-year-old veterinarian rape and murder case, Samajwadi Party leader Jaya Bachchan gave a statement that received mixed responses. The actor turned politician said that the accused should be brought in public and lynched. 

Questioning the judiciary system of the country, Rajya Sabha's member of Parliament said, "I think the people now want the government to give a proper answer and a very definite answer. What has happened? How they have tackled it and how far justice has been done to these people? A similar incident happened in Hyderabad a day before the vet was raped. Do you not think the security in charge should be questioned and they should be asked to give an answer to why they were not able to protect that area?"

She went further on and suggested an alternative and thus received appreciation as well as flak on Twitter. She added, "I think these people need to be shamed in front of the entire country. People who have not done their jobs properly. These kind of people (the accused) should be brought out in public and lynched."
