Its very heart wrenching to hear about the frequently happening rape cases in India with the latest being gruesome rape of Hyderabad based veterinary doctor Priyanka Reddy.
A veterinary doctor, Priyanka Reddy, was raped and burnt alive on Hyderabad-Bengaluru National Highway 44 in the wee hours of Thursday morning. Her charred body was found in the limits of Shadnagar police station.
After Priyanka Reddy another girl Roja from Kanchipuram raped, brutually tortured and hanged to death.
After every rape there is a demand to create strict rules and work on woman safety issues, but inspite of all the measures, rarest of the rare kind of rapes keep happening. There are numerous other rapes cases reports. Many of them are not reported at all due to fear of repercussions.
Priyanka Reddy case is just a drop in the ocean. It's another wake up call to the fact that 25,000+ rapes are reported annually in India and about 1.5 lakh are still awaiting justice. All this was discussed during Nirbhaya case too and we've achieved nothing since then so far.
Rape is the fourth most common crime against women in India. [According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) 2013 annual report, 24,923 rape cases were reported across India in 2012. Out of these, 24,470 were committed by someone known to the victim (98% of the cases).
We request you to speedup the investigation and punishment in Dr Priyanka Reddys rape case and make a law to punish the guilty within 1 month by giving them capital punishment.
