Murdered twice over…..

A few days ago I saw in the news that a young girl of 14 was killed in Noida. Didn’t pay attention to it much initially but the constant 24X7 news channels ensured that I did catch up the follow up stories.

It appeared that a house servant was involved. Then his body was found. Later on news about this girl having made a huge number of calls to her friend who was a boy. Her popularity in school. And then finally the nail in the coffin of the poor girl. She was found in compromising position with the male servant.

The girl is dead and hence she can’t speak out for herself. The police give us this version of what happened in the house. There were supposedly 4 people in the house, 2 who were in caught in a compromising position are dead. The other two alive have denied the sequence of events. Now if the police release such a sequence was it done on forensic basis? And if it does can it prove the sequence of events to the media. Especially when they announce such a sequence of events to the media. And the press is lapping it up. Ignoring that a girl has been murdered cold heartedly and beyond that her reputation has be murdered by the police aided by the press. So much for justice. I guess dead people don’t care is what the attitude of the Police and Press is.

Without getting emotional and wondering what would these policemen do if their daughter was found murdered? I would stick to facts. Not the facts of the case because I am no lawyer and don’t want to pretend to be a wise guy either. But why is it that over and over when we see a young girl being brutally murdered, her dignity is also murdered in the aftermath. Is it some sort of justification our society needs to come to terms with a murdered teenager? I guess if so then we are a society of cannibals. Sure we dont cook human beings, but surely we feed on each other.

  1. After reading this, I suddenly remembered that kid in The Sixth Sense, who eerily whispered, "I see dead people."I feel like asking him, do they cry at times??? do they still feel the pain? the frustrations? do they still get slandered? and do they still look back in anger at the life which they left behind, for the human-dogs to tear away with their paws and teeth, mercilessly..???

    1. I found the whole thing quite disgusting- 4 years down the line, I still remember being very angry. It was strange as I was very angry for complete strangers.. the only good thing out of it was I started blogging more regularly here.
