Jaya Bachchan expressed her condolences to the victim's family and said that she understood their pain.
"There are many girls in my family. I feel scared when I think of what the 23-year-old had to go through. Whatever we did was very late. We should collectively apologise to the family and to all women who have gone through such an ordeal. Please don't tarnish the reputation of our country," she said.
