There are protests in India over the gang-rape and murder of that teenage girl in Kolkata.
Apparently the authorities are no longer talking about suicide.
She was then set on fire on December 23 and died in a state-run hospital late on New Year’s Eve, police said.
“She gave us a dying declaration in front of the health officials that she was set on fire by two persons close to the accused when she was alone at home on December 23,” local policeman Nimbala Santosh Uttamrao told AFP.
It beggars belief. They raped her and then to punish her for being raped by them, they set her on fire.
THEY SET HER ON FIRE.
What is wrong with people?
Several hundred activists on Wednesday protested in Kolkata over the crime, which was shocking in its brutality, even after a year when sex crimes have been widely reported in India.
Meanwhile, Taslima’s serial, which might have raised some consciousness about the way women are treated in South Asia…will not be seen, because someone thought it might offend someone. Fabulous priorities.
