"The National Commission for Women is giving instructions that justice should prevail, and, that is why this case should go to the fast track court," said Vyas.

"The culprits should not be saved by anybody," she added.

The Jharkhand Police on Monday detained Nirupama Pathak's parents, five days after she was found dead at her home in Koderma District.

The family claims that she was found hanging.

Post mortem reports suggest it could be a case of murder. A ligature mark was found around her neck

Pathak's parents were reportedly opposed to her marrying Priyabhanshu Ranjan, her batch mate at Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC), because he belonged to another caste. ANI)
