The recent rape case in the kotkhai tehsil of Shimla district of Himachal Pradesh has shook the different parts of the country. The girl was raped and then brutally murdered when she was returning from the school. The incident has outraged protests in various parts of Shimla and the people are demanding that the true culprits should be found and punished.
In the wake of this incident the students of Himachal Students Union organized a candle march in the Panjab University campus on July 17 during the evening hours. There was anger among the students that how such heinous crimes could be committed by the people of the country.
Puaranik Bali, a student of GGDSD College said that this is not a matter to be politicized in any way and the students of all students’ political parties should come forward and join their hands to raise voice against the culprits. Such incidences require unity rather than indifference to make a difference in the society.
The true culprits are yet to be identified and the people won’t let them run away from the law. The struggle still continues and there’s still hope that the accused would be caught and justice will be given to the deceased.
