Before killing the child, the rapists are said to have sent a message to a friend in Meerut to come and "slake his lust" before they murdered their victim.

Modi will arrive in Stockholm on Monday evening and stay overnight.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will today embark on a five-day visit to Sweden and the United Kingdom with an aim to boost bilateral cooperation in key areas, including trade and investment. "Prime Minister, we write to you not just to express our collective sense of shame and not just to give voice to our anguish or lament and mourn the death of our civilizational values - but to express our rage".

The bilateral leg of the United Kingdom tour begins with PM Modi's talks with Theresa May at 10 Downing Street on Wednesday morning, during which both leaders are expected to discuss a wide range of issues of mutual interest, including separatism, cross-border terrorism, visa and immigration.

Modi will also hold bilateral meetings with the prime ministers of the other four Nordic countries.

The huge crowd that had congregated at Chhattisgarh's Bijapur district for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's event was taken by surprise when Modi, who was slated to present a pair of slippers to a tribal woman, bent down and helped the bare-footed woman wear her gifted footwear.

The Prime Minister said, this is his first visit to Sweden and India and Sweden share warm and friendly ties.

On the sidelines of the India-Nordic Summit, Modi will have separate bilateral meetings with Prime Ministers of Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Norway.

"We are looking at 10 to 12 deliverables and a joint statement", said K Nagaraj Naidu, Joint Secretary (Europe West) in the Ministry of External Affairs.

In an FB post, he said, " Sweden is a valuable partner in our development initiatives. An Ayurveda Centre of Excellence will be launched in London. The India-UK CEOs Forum will also take place during this visit. PM Modi's visit to Britain this time has been themed "Living bridge and tech partnership". They said the government failed to reassure minorities and vulnerable sections of society "that they need not fear for their life and liberty".

On the sidelines of the "unprecedented" welcome, Modi will also be greeted with some protests at Parliament Square on Wednesday afternoon, being spearheaded by Pakistani-origin peer, Lord Ahmed, and bringing together UK-based Kashmiri and Sikh groups.

In both cases, Prime Minister, it is your party which is in power.
