The BJP yesterday questioned the "hush-hush manner" in which the 23-year-old gang-raped woman was cremated early in the morning, within hours of her body being flown in from Singapore.

“We understand the right of privacy, the right of privacy has to be respected, but the hush-hush manner raises curious questions too,” said BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad.

Minister of State for Home RPN Singh, who was present at the crematorium, said the cremation was held quietly “as we wanted to respect the privacy of the family”.

The BJP has also demanded a special session of parliament to discuss rising crimes against women.
