Nationwide shock and outrage over the grisly rape and murder of the Hyderabad veterinary doctor, sickening posts have emerged on Facebook, justifying the horrific crime committed on the young woman.
Several citizens have approached the police, requesting immediate action against such Facebook accounts that have also displayed her photo. Supreme Court guidelines prohibit naming of a rape victim.
Following one such complaint by a certain D Raja Shekar from Suroornagar, a case of cybercrime has been registered by the L B Nagar police.
‘Amar nath’, ‘Simley Nani’, and ‘Siddu Jai Ram II’ are some of the FB accounts that have put up the revulsive posts. The comments were along the lines of “It is not the fault of the person who commits the rape, it is the hormones that go out of control and not the mistake of the rapists” and “What is the mistake in raping a girl? A lot of boys have emotionally suffered in their careers due to girls, so what is wrong in raping them?”
In his complaint, D Raja Shekar wrote, “…When the whole world is feeling bad about this incident, I came across a post in facebook by Amar Nath and Jack seal sravan kushi smiley nani, which shows his sexual intention against woman. Which is completely inacceptable for the betterment of the society. As a responsible citizen of India I believe these kind of people need to be punished severely (sic).”
