The title of a recently released Reuters article is “SECOND man arrested for India girl rape, CHAOS in parliament” (Web-site/URL: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/22/us-india-rape-idUSBRE93L08M20130422). It’s NOT as if we need any more “chaos”.
“Indian police arrested a second man on Monday (March 22 2013) in connection with the RAPE and TORTURE of a FIVE-year-old girl in New Delhi and parliament was adjourned twice amid an UPROAR about the crime which has rekindled popular fury at widespread sexual violence”. “uproar” is the latest word suggesting that people are FURIOUS over what happened to this CHILD.
“The anger echoes the response to the gang rape of a 23-year-old trainee physiotherapist on a bus on December 16 (2012). She later died of her injuries. Protesters are ANGRY (that) authorities have FAILED to prevent more such crimes“. “government authorities have failed” SHOULDN’T surprise us anymore. At least this is what GIGI IBRAHIM (gsquare86) would say.
“Police say the child was abducted on Monday last week (April 15, 2013) and kept in captivity by two men in the basement of the building that she lived in with her family. Neighbors say they found her two days later (April 17, 2013) after hearing her cries”.
“Media reported SEVERAL other attacks on children over the weekend, including that of a NINE-year old girl in the north-eastern state of Assam, who had HER THROAT SLITafter being GANG-RAPED, TV channels said”. Again, “throat slit” is BRUTAL/HORRIFYING/DESPICABLE.
“A man was arrested at the weekend for the attack on the five-year-old and is due to appear in a Delhi court this week. The second suspect, in his early 20s, was arrested early on Monday (April 22, 2013) at a relative’s house in the eastern state of Bihar on information received from New Delhi, local police chief Rajeev Mishra said”. “He was arrested at about 1 a.m. Delhi police and local police made a COMBINED effort to arrest him“. Of course, this suggests that this man was RESISTING arrest.
Finally, according to House Speaker Meira Kumar, “(speaking) before the house was adjourned”, “Though parliament has recently passed tougher legislation to prevent rapes, the evil has not abated and such incidents are still ON THE RISE throughout the country” obviously. The million-dollar question however is still: what are POLITICIANS willing to do to address this problem?
