This weekend Crime Patrol brings to you yet another heart-wrenching story which created a burning sensation among all Indians. Our capital city, New Delhi, now a days most popularly known as rape capital of the nation, is again in limelight after the Gang rape case of a 23 years old girl. The young girl was beaten and gang raped
on a chilly winter evening last year. She died thirteen days later while undergoing emergency treatment in abroad for brain and gastrointestinal
damage from the assault.
One fine evening, she and her friend boarded a private bus, thinking it was a public bus. The only other passengers were five men who were friends of the driver, who then assaulted the pair.
Deeply traumatized with this incident, creative director of the show Mr. S. Subramanian said, "We need to keep the flame of the candles of millions of Indians burning. The anger cannot just subside. Not until there is a deterrent to this malaise. We need to tell the ones whom we have elected to decide for the better of the nation and its citizens, we cannot forget and we will not forget. Crime Patrol promises to keep this fire of anguish, this cry for justice alive."
The young woman’s ordeal appears to have inspired a massive amount of self-reflection in India with respect to how women and girls are treated. The death of the girl has sparked a new wave of peaceful protests across India.
Intense anchor Anup Soni said, “We want citizen of India to get aware about the rape and molestation cases which happens daily with the females, which are not even registered in the police files. Two things on which people should think through this episode. Firstly government of India should have to make strict rules for criminals so that before committing such crimes, there has to be a fear in their mind. Secondly, change has to come from an individual. Everyone should have to respect women of their own house”.
Entire nation is in a deep shock and in pain by the present situation of the assault and molestation cases happening very frequently with the women of the country. Crime Patrol dedicates the special episode to aware the citizens and to make them rethink for the change required in the country.
