Describing the latest incident of outrageous rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in India as "revolting", International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde today hoped that the Indian authorities starting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi would pay more attention to it.
She made the remarks during an interaction with reporters at the start of the spring meeting of the worldwide finance organisations.

Lagarde, a long-time advocate for women's rights, said the comments reflected her personal view, not that of the institution.
While she praised the nation's economic performance, "what has happened is just revolting", Lagarde said when asked about the incidents in the past week involving a seven- and an eight-year-old girl.
Global cooperation "has served us so well and delivered more progress for more people than at any time in history", but is now being questioned, Lagarde said.
Lagarde however cautioned that "unilateral trade restrictions have not been helpful, and we suspect that they might even dent confidence". But at the same time, she urged the USA to take advantage of good economic times to reduce its debt and deficits, rather than increase them. 'The actual impact on growth is not very substantial when you measure in terms of GDP we're talking about decimals in most cases, ' Lagarde says.
But it will be the implementation that matters, she said.
