Justice for Priyanka Reddy

Justice for Priyanka Reddy was quick. She was a Hyderabad veterinarian who was raped and murdered by four criminals on 27/11/2019. On 6/12/2019 they were killed in an encounter. Cyberabad Police Commissioner Vishwanath Sajjanar headed the police team.
Priyanka Reddy’s rape and murder had caused national outrage. Jaya Bachchan in Rajya Sabha had said about criminals “These types of people need to be brought out and lynched. I think it is time… the people want the government to give a proper and definite answer.” After the encounter she said “Better late than never.”
Venkaiah Naidu questioned mercy to rapists and murderers. He said “We need to think about changes in the legal judicial system… why look at age when a person has done such a crime and say he is a juvenile… What has age got to do with such a heinous crime?… In my opinion we need to revisit the law.”
Cases of rape and murder drag on for years. Even after death sentence and rejection of mercy petition there is appeal against rejection and Supreme Court reduces death sentence to life sentence and criminals are out. When lawyers like Abhishek Manu Singhvi approach Supreme Court in a political case judges hear cases after midnight or on Sundays. People have lost faith in judiciary. Cases drag on for years. It is date after date. It is close to seven years after gang rape and murder of Jyoti Singh Pandey and criminals are yet to be hanged. One criminal got away because he was juvenile.
There was joy all over the country. People of Hyderabad were happy and showered rose petals on police. Women distributed sweets. Priyanka Reddy’s father said “It has been 10 days to the day my daughter died. I express my gratitude towards the police and government for this. My daughter’s soul must be at peace now.”
Jyoti’s mother said she was happy the parents did not have to wait for seven year for justice. Olympic silver medallist and former minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore tweeted: “I congratulate the Hyderabad police and the leadership that allows the police to act like police…” Meenakshi Lekhi said the police are not given weapons for show and that it is a case of reaping what one sows.
Mayawati said “Police should not treat people accused of such crimes like government guests. Instead, like the Hyderabad police has done, they should face strict legal action and this will lead to considerable control of such crimes.”
Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij said “Hyderabad gang rape accused killed. Whatever happened, howsoever it happened, but the right thing happened.”
Saina Nehwal tweeted “Great work #hyderabadpolice.. we salute u”.
P. V. Sindhu tweeted “Justice has been served! @TelanganaPolice.”

  1. Your style is to simply say what other said- Never what you yourself think.

  2. What I think is in this paragraph. “Cases of rape and murder drag on for years. Even after death sentence and rejection of mercy petition there is appeal against rejection and Supreme Court reduces death sentence to life sentence and criminals are out. When lawyers like Abhishek Manu Singhvi approach Supreme Court in a political case judges hear cases after midnight or on Sundays. People have lost faith in judiciary. Cases drag on for years. It is date after date. It is close to seven years after gang rape and murder of Jyoti Singh Pandey and criminals are yet to be hanged. One criminal got away because he was juvenile.”
