Shimla gangrape and murder case, culprits not just strangled victim, but had broken her limbs too, say unofficial reports

Justice for priyanka

SHIMLA- Outrage over spine chilling incident of gangrape and brutal murder of a 16-year-old school girl in Kotkhai Tehsil, Shimla district, Himachal Pradesh, spilled to capital town by yesterday evening. People in Kotkhai and Shimla took to streets demanding justice for innocent victim of monstrous act. People in the region rebuked local MLAs, Deputy Commissioner and even Chief Minister, who haven’t issued any statement or visited the grieving family of the victim girl, for not showing concern over such a horrific incident of crime.

A few politicians like Prem Kumar Dhumal have issued media statements, but these statements are nothing more than exploiting opportunities to politicize the matter.

Sadly, Shimla Police is still clueless about the culprits after four days of discovery of the naked dead body of the girl in woods of Kotkhai. The postmortem report hasn’t been disclosed yet and police is avoiding talking to media persons. So far, police could only record statements of victim’s classmates, school staff, and locals. Police investigation reportedly remains confined to sniffing the spot for evidences where the dead body was found. It’s being speculated that the criminals were, perhaps, aware about girl’s routine and that she doesn’t carry a mobile phone.

Amid this, reports in Hindi dailies and other media are claiming that the girl was not just strangled to death after gangrape, but the culprits had broken her hand and a leg. However, police or administration isn’t commenting over these unofficial reports. The forensic report is still awaited after four days, and Shimla Police is facing wrath of public for such a slow speed of investigation.

People expressed disappointment with the local media, and said that same incident, if had occurred in Chandigarh or Delhi, would have made national headlines. The Superintendent Shimla Police, DW Negi, is taking the matter very lightly, alleged locals expressing disbelief over efficiency of police department.

People expressed doubt over capacity of the police in investigation of serious crimes. Police department is blank in the case of unexplained death of forest guard in Karsog division, said people on Social Media.

The current case has sparked a debate over embolden criminals and rising rate of such crimes in Himachal Pradesh. A section of people still not ready to believe that people of Himachal can be so inhuman, and that gang of migrants from other states are possibly involved in the crime.
Locals have also reported lack of proper roads and lack of school in vicinity to their villages. Children are forced to cross forests full of animals like leopard and bears to reach their schools. In the current case, criminals took advantage of this vulnerability

Today, members of Press Club of Shimla also organized a candle march and demanded justice for the victim.

Policeman in Chail solan helping elderly during curfew

Solan-Pictures of a policeman approaching an elderly woman and later carrying a heavy bundle of fodder for her are making Himachal Pradesh Police proud. This policeman is being applauded by not only the people but also by his department. 

The pictures are taken in Chail area of the district where an elderly lady was carrying fodder for livestock from jungle during the relaxation period in curfew.

On seeing the elderly lady struggling with a bundle of fodder (green tree-leaves), which appeared to be heavy for her, an on-duty policeman carried the bundle on his back for her.

HP Police Helping People During COVID-19 Curfew

A resident of Kunihar in Solan district posted these pictures on his social media handle. He recognized this policeman as Head-Constable Jasvir Singh, who was also his classmate 17 years ago.

We don’t know about this policeman in his personal life, but a mention of this gesture is important if seen symbolically in context to the police-citizens relationship.

This compassionate gesture of a policeman, in a time when the police is enforcing curfew and mostly seen dealing strictly with people to make them comply with the law, is melting hearts.

Visuals of people either being beaten or punished physically for breaking curfew did attract criticism not only from the people but also from the DGP SR Mardi.

However, the same policemen are also going a step ahead to help people in various ways during the COVID-19 crisis. In various districts, there are instances where policemen are even spending from their own pockets to help the needy around them. Perhaps, pictures of all of them won’t appear on social media but good policemen are there helping people while discharging their duty. 

These pictures remind us that policemen aren’t devoid of emotion and compassion.  Therefore it becomes duty of every citizen to support the police and make its job of maintaining law and order easier.
