A 14-Month-Old Infant was sexually assaulted by a Bihari Man at Sabarkantha District in Gujarat. The accused was arrested within hours but this incident prompted Gujaratis to attack Non-Locals all over the state. Several stories of attacks on the migrant workers have been reported since then.
Prabhavathi Devi, Mother of the Accused, told Government to hang her son if he is proven guilty of committing heinous act. At the same time, She appealed Gujaratis not to attack Biharis or people of other state for the fault committed by her Son.
On the other hand, Father of the Accused informed that his Son had left home along with his friends few years ago and he is mentally unstable.
Violence over the infant rape forced over 50,000 migrants to leave Gujarat. Most of them hail from Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. As many as 342 people involved in the violence have been arrested so far.
