Bollywood actors have expressed their outraged on Twitter following the gangrape and subsequent death of a woman from a Hathras village in Uttar Pradesh. The 19-year-old Dalit woman, who was gang-raped and tortured by four men two weeks ago, was admitted in a critical condition to a Delhi hospital. She died earlier today. 

Akshay Kumar tweeted, “Angry and frustrated! Such brutality in Hathras gangrape. When will this stop? Our laws and their enforcement must be so strict that the mere thought of punishment makes rapists shudder with fear! Hang the culprits. Raise your voice to safeguard daughters and sisters - it's the least we can do.”

Kangana Ranaut and Richa Chadha demanded the perpetrators be brought to justice. 

“Shoot these rapists publicly. What is the solution to these gang rapes that are growing in numbers every year? What a sad and shameful day for this country. Shame on us, we failed our daughters,” Kangana tweeted.

Richa wrote, “Justice for Hathras victim. Everyone deserves to live with dignity. Punish the perpetrators.”

Farhan Akhtar tweeted, “Sad sad sad. How much longer can this be allowed to go on.”

Reports state that the four accused in the case have been arrested and that they will now also be charged with murder
