Ankita Bhandari murder raises many questions. Expelling from party or demolition of resort may satisfy the anger the anger but cannot bring back the poor girl. Big questions. Why should cases like Ankita Bhandari happen? Where is an end to it? Are the big questions.
A 19-year old girl goes missing on September 18, 2022. After two-days her body fished out of a lake in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand on September 22. Political corridors become active as the main accused Pulkit Arya is the son of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) members – Vinod Arya and his brother Ankit Arya from the party’s primary membership. Muck and filth exposed. The question is why political fraternity or the politically connected people feel that they would get away with everything they do having the political power?
Coming straight away to the story, I am referring to the Ankita Bhandari murder case in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand. Daughter of Veerendra Singh Bhandari, joined the resort as a receptionist less than a month back. The poor girl got killed even before she could enjoy her first salary and all this because she tried to protect her dignity.
Pulkit Arya tried to portray the entire incident as an accident and wash his hands off. He had lodged a complain of Ankita going missing. The prima facie investigation revealed that Pulkit used to force Ankita to make sexual relations with the guests. Verbal scuffle surfaced after she refused. According to police, Pulkit, along with two of his employees – resort manager Saurabh Bhaskar and assistant manager Ankit Gupta took her to Rishikesh on some pretext and had pushed Ankita on their way back.
Jumpig into action, the Uttarakhand administration demolished Arya’s resort in Rishikesh which had been built illegally on Friday night. The BJP has expelled Pulkit Arya’s father Vinod Arya and his brother Ankit Arya from the party’s primary membership.
However, the entire incident has raised a question on the safety and security of females working as staffers at such guest houses, and resorts.
Uttarakhand police have also arrested resort manager Saurabh Bhaskar and assistant manager Ankit Gupta apart from Pulkit Arya.
