Lamba, who earlier was a Congress worker, shared the picture of the victim who recently was raped and killed brutally in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. Citing Lamba's activities on Facebook, the complainant Rakesh Singh filed an FIR against her.
The complainant was quoted as saying, "Alka Lamba shared a picture of the gangrape victim on July 19 on Facebook and that is why I am filing a complaint against Lamba."
I hope the police arrests Alka Lamba as soon as possible
He also added, "I hope the police arrests Lamba as soon as possible. Alka Lamba has committed a major blunder, even bigger that what the rapists did, by sharing this objectionable photo. At least 2094 people have liked the photo. This should be investigated as a cyber crime and the people who have liked the photo must also be located and arrested."
While Lamba has been facing legal actions against her, UP Police identified the rape accused and arrested him. Contradicting to initial reports, now it has been established that the victim was not gangraped, rather she was brutally raped by only one person who had beaten her to death.
Autopsy reports confirmed that the assailants had inserted a sharp object into her private parts besides inflicting injuries on her face and eyes. The police believe it was a 'hate crime'.
Lamba earlier had revealed the name of the victim who was assaulted in public and the whole act was shot and was broadcast in local TV channel in Assam. She was removed from the investigative panel of National Commission for Women (NCW). [Read: Alka Lamba hogs limelight from Guwahati molestation case]
