Guwahati: The nation is burning in a rage after the dastardly incident in Hyderabad city where a 26-year-old veterinarian was charred to death after being gang-raped by four men on the night of November 27th, 2019. However, the number of such crimes is still on the rise.
In one such similar incident, a six-year-old was kidnapped and allegedly raped and murdered in the Tonk district of Rajasthan on November 29th, 2019. The girl had gone missing on Saturday afternoon and her body was found behind the bushes.
The Cyberabad Police probing the gang-rape and murder of the woman veterinarian moved a court on December 2nd, 20-19 seeking custody of the four people arrested in connection with the heinous crime for interrogation.
All the four men involved in the Hyderabad brutal rape case have been arrested and have been charged with rape and murder by Cyberabad Police. The Telangana government has also promised the case will be heard by a fast-track court. Now, the question is when this trend is going to stop? Is it only the legal system that needs reform to stop such crimes from happening?
As perverse as it may sound but at a time when the anger is intensifying, the name of the veterinary doctor has become the top trend on a porn website. This is not the first time, even post the Kathua rape case, something similar happened and it’s quite popular in India.
According to the latest government crime figures, 33,658 women have been raped in India in 2017 - an average of 92 every day.
During the ongoing winter session of the Parliament, MPs spoke against the recent cases of rapes in various parts of the country, including the one of a young veterinarian in Hyderabad. On the increasing crimes against women, Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan said people now want the government to give a proper and definite answer – which according to her is the mob lynching of the accused.
MPs of different parties joined the chorus to condemn the rising crime against women and demanded stringent laws that punish the culprit within a fixed time-frame.
