As we recall the Nirbhaya case and other rape cases in the nation, we have to look for the reasons. Some people to justify this horrible act says the western culture plays the role as women’s short dresses and their late outings led to all this. But now, we really want them to “justify” this incident where an 80-year-old woman was brutally murdered by inserting a plastic bottle into her anal cavity.
The incident took place in Sonipat’s Bathgaon village in Haryana on Wednesday. A toilet cleaner harpic bottle was inserted in 80 yr old anal cavity and was left to bleed till she died eventually.
The victim’s body was found lying on the blood-soaked quilts on the ground. The police is not ruling out the possibility of sexual abuse. Any evidence of rape hasn’t been found until now. The victim was rushed to the Sonipat civil hospital where the doctors found the bottle in her body .
Doctors, who performed the post-mortem, said they had never before seen such brutality and that it reminded them of the infamous Nirbhaya case of December 2012 where a woman was brutalised and gangraped in a moving bus in Delhi leading to widespread protests across the country.
The reports claimed that the bottle had been inserted with such force that it caused the anus to rupture and damaged the small and big intestines as well.Excessive internal bleeding chocked the lungs, which is believed to be the cause of death.
Sonipat Sadar police station SHO Prahlad Singh has his say on the investigation, “Jai Bhagwan was the first to see his mother’s body. When he removed the quilts, he saw the blood. He informed the neighbours who called the police. We have asked the doctors to take swabs to ascertain whether the victim was subjected to sexual abuse or not.”
Dr. Sumit Kaushal, a member of the medical board who was appointed to conduct the autopsy termed this murder as “beyond imagination“.
We hope that her soul rests in peace.
But what is also perplexing is how the perpetrators got away with the crime, with questions — such as why did the old woman not shout, and how the accused gained entry into the house — being raised. Their actual intention is also under a cloud of question.
