Union Home Minister Amit Shah stated on Thursday that the Delhi police and the prosecution will ensure that the strictest punishment will be given to the culprits at the earliest.

“I have my eye on the matter. The Delhi Police and the prosecution will ensure that whoever has committed the crime will receive the strictest of punishments by the court,” Shah said at a Times Now Summit. “The Delhi Police had no role in the letter (written by Shraddha in 2020) that has emerged. She had reached out to the police under the Maharashtra government, stating that she was being threatened and that she would be killed and cut into pieces. Even after that, no action was taken. Yesterday, Deputy CM said that there will be a probe into the matter. Our government was not in power at the time, but strict action will be taken against whoever is responsible,” the Union Minister added.

Shah also criticized the opposition for their attempts to discredit them ahead of the Gujarat polls. In a reference to Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain, who has been jailed, Shah said, “A jailed minister enjoying facilities in jail should be a question for his party, not ours. In all my years of politics, I have never seen a party not asking for a minister’s resignation on moral grounds even after he has been jailed,” he added.

Regarding the Uniform Civil Code, Shah emphasized that from the Bharatiya Jan Sangh to the present, UCC has always been a promise of the party to the people of this country. “In a secular country, how can we have a religion-based law?” Shah asked. “The Bharatiya Janata Party is determined to implement UCC in the country and we will bring it but after all democratic discussions are over.”

“No other party, except the BJP, is in favor of the Uniform Civil Code. In a democracy, healthy debate is a necessity. There is a need for open and healthy debate on the issue,” the Home Minister added. He also mentioned that a panel under the chairmanship of retired Supreme Court and High Court chief justices has been formed in three states, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Gujarat, and action will be taken according to their recommendations.
