अंकित के पिताजी से बात की। जो हुआ उसकी जितनी निंदा करें उतनी कम है।— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) February 4, 2018
अंकित को न्याय दिलाने के लिए दिल्ली सरकार बड़े से बड़ा वकील खड़ा करेगी। हम हर सम्भव कोशिश करेंगे कि दोषियों को सख्त से सख्त सज़ा हो।
भगवान अंकित के परिवार को शक्ति दे। इस संघर्ष में हम उनके साथ हैं।
A barbaric family slit #AnkitSaxena’s throat.— Aarti Tikoo Singh (@AartiTikoo) February 4, 2018
Ankur’s Dad: “People were busy taking his photos instead of helping him.” His Mom: “20-30 people gathered around us were clicking videos while I was calling for help.” That’s a telling comment about #India and we Indians. Shame!
Ankit ‘ ruthless murder is the ultimate ugly face of communal hatred against the love of two Young and innocent people who had unfortunately committed the crime of being born in different communities . We, all the decent Indians should hang our heads in shame .— Javed Akhtar (@Javedakhtarjadu) February 4, 2018
Ankit Saxena was killed coz he was in love with a girl from a different religion. It is awful and extremely condemnable that we are degenerating fast into a hate-filled society. Let us promote love and respect for each other beyond caste n communities before its too late.— S lrfan Habib (@irfhabib) February 4, 2018
