Today it gave me immense pleasure to read about the encounter case in which the beasts got killed in the Priyanka Reddy rape and murder case.
Kudos to the Hyderabad police for taking the initiative and eliminating these unwanted people from the surface of the earth. Reading the overall responses in papers and social media, a section of people are happy about this whole episode and the other section of people are opposing saying why were they not given a fair trial as any one of the rapists could be innocent.
Now my take on this.
Though I would never advocate killing anyone but in this case this seemed appropriate. We all know about the Nirbhaya case. How many years her parents suffered to get justice. An astonishing 7 years! In the Nirbhaya case, two of the rapists took up their own lives while in jail and one walked away scotfree as he was a juvenile at the time of the incident. Does being a juvenile not account to his participation in such a heinous crime, ridiculous! While doing this act should age, profession, gender all even be considered?? A rape is the most barbaric act one endures and the perpetrators are not to be given even one iota of consideration.
No one should be denied justice . It not only demotivates them but the trauma, humiliation and exhaustion they face during the trials as in case hearings, loss of money and humiliating questions are horrendous. And what do we as citizens get by keeping these dreaded ones in jails?? The taxpayers money is wasted in feeding them and bearing their expenses along with delayed justice.
We all know this was a fake encounter and was deliberately done as there was immense pressure due on the government as people came on the streets and revolted against the incident. People are seething with anger, they want answers to the questions that go unanswered, we want security for our girls /daughters/wives to walk freely on the roads.
Hyderabad police have set an example for other states to implement such steps in case of such crimes. A rapist is not an innocent person and any person involved in any rape can not be considered innocent as they are aware of their doings!
The people today who said this was a sad move on the part of the government and police have lost their thinking abilities. Some things like these need to happen giving out a strong signal to the people out there that this too could be your fate if involved in such crimes.
Fear of laws need to be instilled in people. They need to know the consequences of breaking the law. And for implementing this sometimes such actions need to take place. Nothing wrong in this move at all.
I’m sure her parents would be happy that atleast this way they got justice instead of this case too being dragged on for years.
Today is the day Priyanka Reddy can rest in peace in real sense . My mind says she would be feeling happy in heaven and justice (right or wrong) is finally served to her though she did not deserve to die in this way at all.
