Girl gangraped by strangers in Uttar Pradesh, fighting for Life in hospital

It seems people have gone on an overdose of Viagra. Rapes and gangrapes are becoming a cult trend and rarely the victim is left to survive. Still, there are no sign of stringent most punishment that is required.

The fresh case has come from Deoria, Uttar Pradesh. A girl originally from Bihar having her family in Delhi was going to Betia in Bihar from Delhi. Due to some reasons she had got down at Bhatparni Station in Deoria, Uttar Pradesh in the night. Two strangers – Deepak and Rohita confronted her and assured safe stay. They took her and gang-raped. She was left in a semi conscious state in a pool of blood when the police recovered her.

The police immediately came into action and lodged an FIR and nabbed both the accused. The girl is critical and is undergoing treatment at the hospital.

There are a few missing links which needs to be connected. One, inspite of repeated requests and warnings by the police not to trust strangers especially on railway stations, the victim decided to move with totally strangers according to prima facie reports. Two, she was to board the train for Bihar, then why did she leave the station at the night. Why not wait at the platform for the next train. However, inspite of all the ‘missing-links’, I totally condemn the incident as no civilised society will support or can support raping a girl no matter she gets down at a allien place or railway station or trusts strangers.

It’s high time stringent most punishment should be given to these people. There is no fear factor and it is the need of the hour.

Finally, I assume that these rapists are residents of Uttar Pradesh, will the state Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath bull-dose their houses.

Ghaziabad court awards death to 20-year old kidnapping, rape and killing four-year old

When Nirbhaya incident had taken place and we saw entire country on the streets standing with placards in their hands in protest demanding stringent most punishment for the rapists, one thought perhaps finally, there has been an uproar in the country against rapes, gangrapes, molestations, eve-teasing and stalking. Perhaps, it was too much to expect. Within a week, a gangrape had surfaced in a school in Delhi. The rape was similar on the lines of Nirbhaya that was still red hot and protesters still sat on so-called ‘dharna’ but unfortunately, nobody stood or included the incident as if everything was well scripted and edited.

A special court in Ghaziabad has awarded death sentence to Sonu Gupta, guilty of kidnapping, raping and killing the toddler. The rape had taken place on December 1, 2022. The dead body was found the next day near the city forest area in Sahibabad in Uttar Pradesh. Six police teams were deputed to crack the case. Police personnel obtained around 150 CCTV footage. Police had arrested Sonu Gupta (20) from 40-feet road of Deendayal Puri of Nandgram police station six days after the incident and he was sent to jail. The verdict was pronounced by Additional District and Sessions under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO). However, the speed shown in this case certainly needs to complimented. Sonu was nabbed within 15 days of the incident.

“The court on Friday held Sonu guilty after listening to 16 witnesses,” the officer said.

Gupta, a factory worker, confessed that he had kidnapped the girl with the intention to rape her but strangled her to death when she started screaming.

Police sought help of DNA test in the investigation. An entry ticket of city forest park was also recovered from the rape accused, which confirmed his presence in that area, DCP Sharma said.

Nothing has changed rather incidents like Nirbhaya had increased at a galloping rate. Death sentence was pronounced in a recent rape of a toddler that ashamed humanity. The guilty Sonu during conducting the medical examination had arrogantly said that he had enjoyed the entire incident. However, he pleaded for mercy when death sentence was pronounced by the court. This shows the mentality and arrogance these people have and perhaps, this is also one of the reason why such incidents are not subsiding. The need of the hour is stringent most punishment that would infuse a ‘fear factor’ in them so that they would think many times before even staring at a girl or women.

Only Bobbitt’s Law for rapists will infuse fear-factor

Someone asked why I did not react on the recent seven-old rape and murder in Delhi. Honestly, there was a notion that such things would take a back seat especially after the protests that took place during ‘Nirbhaya’ gangrape.

However, I have an observation here and would like to share as I strongly feel just by calling the victim by different names to protect her identity cuts no ice unless and until she is protected or saved. Like in case of Jyoti Singh Pandey, the media called her by different names to market their stories, some called her, ‘Amanat’, ‘Damini’, ‘Delhi Brave Heart’, and ‘Nirbhaya’, the name that finally became the cult name. Rather than all these, the need of the hour is stringent punishment and it should be no less than Bobbitt’s Law. I have discussed, debated, argued umpteen times on this issue.

If carnal desire is so strong that it destroys innocent lives then chop the organ. I have been saying this in my live programes and editorials. I remained silent because nothing will change unless ‘stringent punishment’ is given. The ‘fear factor’ is missing which needs to be infused.

I covered the Delhi Brave Heart (Jyoti Singh Pandey) case and have seen the protests thaty simply went berserk especially the day then Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde had ordered a lathi charge on the media persons who had been reporting from India Gate. Honestly, it felt good to see the protest but really sad to see that anger or agression has died down. Nothing has changed, nothing would change… Rapes, gangrapes, molestations, eve-teasings, stalkings continues …
