The hunger strike by Swati Maliwal, chief of the Delhi Commission for Women, has entered the 10th day.

Swati Maliwal was taking out a march along with her women supporters from Rajghat to Parliament on Thursday to highlight the matter of formulating stricter laws in cases of violence against women, among other issues. But Delhi Police personnel stopped the march mid-way by setting up barricades. Women protesters appeared very upset with the Modi government.

According to women supporters of Maliwal, Delhi Police personnel resorted to heavy lathicharge to stop the march, due to which some women suffered injuries.

Protesters are demanding that in cases of heinous crimes like rape, the hearings in courts should not be dragged on for long duration. Such cases should be heard in fast-track courts and the accused should be punished within six months.

Maliwal said that no representative from the government has met her even on the 10th day of her hunger strike. Maliwal has made it clear that till such time that the central government does not announce the formulation of strict laws based on her demands, her hunger strike will continue.
