Actors Kangana Ranaut, Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Farhan Akhtar, Richa Chadha, and others condemned the incident and demanded justice for the girl.

The girl was attacked a fortnight ago at a village in Hathras, some 200 km from Delhi. She was dragged by her dupatta into the fields where she had been cutting grass with her family. She was admitted to Aligarh hospital and was in ICU. She was later moved to Delhi.

Kumar said the laws and its enforcement in the country must be more strict so that the very thought of punishment can make rapists shudder with fear.

Gautam said she prays for severe punishment and justice for the Hathras victim.

Huma Qureshi too called for action against the culprits, writing, "How long do we have to tolerate these brutal crimes!"
