“The best remedy for those who are frightened, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere they can be alone with the sky, nature and God”.

How can someone go outside and clear their mind when their own safety is at threat?

On Tuesday 23 June 2021, a woman was found scorched in scrubby field, near Nolambur service road. The woman was a corporation worker, she was married and had two kids. She was reported missing by her husband on Monday when she did not return from work. Nolambur police was notified by a garbage collector that there was corpse in the area. She was killed by her co-worker; they were both allegedly in an affair. When they were in a quarrel near the Nolambur service road her co-worker was “infuriated” and slapped her, stuffed her mouth with paper after she cried out, later he tied her hands with her shawl, slit her throat and threw her body into the bushes in the ground and set her body on fire. The residents nearby had reported a fire in the area where she was set fire.

This is not the first incident where someone has been slaughtered in the same ground. There might have been many more such incidents which have not come to the notice of the police or anybody.

In 2017, the place was cleared of the bushes and weeds, it has been four years since, and they have all grown back. The owner of the land has not taken any action regarding these events.

How can I, a kid still trying to figure out, life trust the world or the corporation to keep me safe when someone was murdered near the same grounds where I go across.

It is not only a question about my security but everyone who lives by. Everyone child, everyone who work night shifts, every woman, the housekeeping personnel whose parents depend on them for survival, everybody who lives nearby or even having to make a living by using this way.

In this season going out has become a luxury and knowing that someone has been slaughtered in the pathway that individuals cross by everyday is terrifying.

Just cutting these plants down will not stop people from doing other cruel events or even ensure full security to everyone living nearby, but this can be the first step towards creating a safer neighborhood for the people living nearby.

Sign this petition and join us in asking the greater Chennai corporation to cut down the shrubs and weeds to create a safer surrounding.
