Hyderabad Rape & Murder: A Reminder of India’s Abysmal Crime Stats
Before one rape case gets justice another props up. This time it’s from Hyderabad, where a 26-year-old veterinarian was gang raped and brutally murdered.
“I’m scared please keep talking to me,” were her last words to her sister before she went missing on 27 November.
Her body was found charred the next day near an underpass about 50 km from Hyderabad.
Four arrests were made recently, and the police says the rape was elaborately planned. The accused burnt her body after committing the crime but the CCTV footage gave them away.
This is only one of the many cases that continue to raise serious concerns about how safe Indian cities are for women but, in the meantime, politicians are busy putting a communal spin to the incident. Tune in to The Big Story!
