Dear All, I urge everyone of you to look into Dhaneswari's case and sign this petition. Dhaneswari, a 14-year-old Dalith girl from Vijayapura city, in Karnataka was allegedly raped and murdered on this Tuesday.

“The girl was in Class 9. On Tuesday afternoon, she and her cousin sister stepped outside the school and were walking home during the lunch break. It was then that two miscreants came on a bike and forcefully took her away,” the police official said.

Four other men in an auto-rickshaw allegedly joined the two men on the bike. Police Officer Patil says that the victim’s cousin followed the men to an empty site near the school.

“She came back and informed the teacher regarding her sister’s whereabouts. By the time the teacher and a few residents of the village rushed to the spot, the girl was lying unconscious and was not breathing properly,” the investigating officer said.

An ambulance was called immediately and the girl’s parents rushed her to the government-run taluk hospital. However, she passed away in the ambulance.

“Medical tests have been conducted and it was revealed that she was suffocated. There are bruises on her neck. She was in bad shape by the time help arrived. We have registered a case of rape, murder, kidnapping and also registered a case under the POCSO Act for gang-raping a minor,” officer added.

Three people have been detained so far; the police said that apart from these men, the others are all minor boys.

It's unfortunate how India has to mourn a daughter lost every day.

The victim's family has demanded that the gang rapists be punished severely.

On Wednesday, the family placed the victim's corpse on the road at Ambedkar circle demanding justice for their daughter.

No one should ever go through this again!

Today it's them, tomorrow it can be a dear one, but India stands on the spirit of treating everyone with utmost respect.

Rape and murder is not the culture of India. We do not tolerate these crimes here. So I want you to come forward and sign this petition, so our PM, Narendra Modi can resolve this issue by escalating it and making stricter laws to punish the culprits. It's the only way to minimize and prevent future crimes at this level.

Thank you!
