The protesters also asked the BJP leadership to expel Chaudhary Lal Singh and Chandra Prakash Ganga from the basic membership of the party.
“It should serve as a deterrent to them. They should not be able to support such type of crime again,” protestors added. “With the hanging of culprits, justice will be delivered to Asifa.
