Unnao rape victims father demands Hyderabad like justice
The country is enveloped with happiness as the Hyderabad rape victim's culprits were shot dead in an encounter with the Hyderabad Police.
Unnao: The country is enveloped with happiness as the Hyderabad rape victim's culprits were shot dead in an encounter with the Hyderabad Police.
Her father said, “Justice was quick and this is the right move. I wish swift justice is meted out in my daughter’s case too. This will send a strong message that committing a heinous crime would have a bloody end and create fear in monsters like Shivam, who secure bail and again commit crime.”
While the 23-year-old victim’s father is still in Unnao, her mother and elder brother had accompanied her to Delhi’s Safdarjung hospital, where she breathed her last late Friday night after battling for life with 90% burns suffered when she was set afire on Thursday morning, allegedly by the gang rape accused.
“I appreciate the action of Hyderabad police in which four accused in the doctor’s rape and murder were killed. Had the same men fled, one could imagine how unsafe our sisters and daughters would have been. It will set a good precedent as perpetrators would realize that justice will be instant,” he added.
Stating that people have lost faith in justice system, he said: “I have seen people running from pillar to post for justice when I would accompany my daughter to court last year. Why does the legal process take so long? Police must set a deadline in such cases and file a chargesheet quickly.”
His feelings were echoed by the villagers, who said the police encounter will act as a deterrent. “The Hyderabad police action will send a strong signal to those who indulge in crime against women. It will act as a strong deterrent against heinous crimes like rape and assaults of women,” said a villager.
“I know this was a serious and sensitive issue for the entire nation, and people have started debating. But, I am very happy and satisfied with the Hyderabad police action. Now, UP police too should set such an example to deal with the monsters of the society like those who set the gang rape survivor on fire,” said a sweetmeat shop owner.
Apart from this, group of college girls also hailed the decision and said that this is a lesson for the nation and will prevent the criminals from committing such crimes.
