My fingers shiver to type and my head bends down in shame as I write about this monstrous act. Who gives us the right to ask for Justice for the poor 8-year old Asifa? In the midst of all the mourning spread across the nation, a “4-Month Old” Baby has been raped and murdered in the historic Rajwada area of Madhya Pradesh. The infant’s blood stained body was found in the basement of the heritage Shiv Vilas Palace.
Even the policemen had to battle hard to gather the courage to conduct the preliminary examination before they carried the body away in a little bundle.
The autopsy report confirmed the brutal sexual assault and said the infant died due to head injuries. SI Trilok Singh Varkade was suspended. “The SI failed to inform seniors of the heinous crime in his area,” said DIG Harinarayanachari Mishra.
The baby’s father sells balloons in the Rajwada area. While the baby was sleeping with her family on a porch outside Rajwada, a guy arrived on a cycle, picked up the girl and moved towards the commercial complex at around 4:45 am. CCTV recorded the entire scene and also found the man returning to the spot alone.
The police have arrested a suspect who is a relative of the victim. The police also seized his cycle and his bloodstained clothes. Talking about the matter, the DIG said, “Policemen were in the area when the incident took place. The 4-month-old girl was sleeping with other men and women and the perpetrator was one of them. The policemen didn’t know that he was not a family member and had ill intentions.”
This is the lowest of the low. We can’t go below this. Raping a 4-month old? Is humanity dead? Don’t fight for human rights my friend, fight for “Humanity”. Don’t go crazy preaching Human Rights. Just keep it down to Humanity for some time. If this keeps continuing for long, it won’t take much for us to decline.
Can we be a little ashamed, if not more? Can the government be ashamed? Can India be ashamed?
