After the gory Nithari case in Noida, Delhi seems to be in a similar loop with a 24-year-old man being arrested for assaulting and murdering a six-year-old girl in Begampur in Northwest Delhi on July 14. The accused has confessed to the killing of 15 other children – both girls and boys – since 2009.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The perpetrator, Ravinder Kumar, was booked on Friday. According to his statement to the police, he decoyed the children with money or chocolates and later on, took them to isolated places, sexually assaulted them, and strangulated them to death. He used to dump the bodies in drains or fields or used to bury them.

The police are on a trail of unearthing similar incidents in Noida, Aligarh, and Badaun in Uttar Pradesh. As of now, the police has cracked upon similar attempts made by the accused in Kanjhawala, Samaipur Badli, Mundka, and Vijay Vihar, and two such cases in Begampur.

The police bumped into Kumar’s involvement in the case when they were probing into the case of a 6-year-old girl who was missing. An FIR with charges of abduction was filed with the police. “The body was spotted in the third floor of a building which was under construction. The building was at a distance of 50m from the girl’s house,” DCP (outer) Vikramjit Singh told Times of India.

The girl was raped and strangled to death. An FIR under IPC sections of rape, murder, sodomy, sexual assault, and destruction of evidence and Section 6 was slammed against the accused.

The police ran into some paper and a driving license belonging to one Sunny. Sunny was immediately interrogated by the police. According to Sunny, his friend Ravinder, his brother, and a third friend assaulted him a few days ago and took away his licence, cash and bike.

On collating the clues, the police got an inkling of Kumar’s involvement in both the cases – six-year-old girl abduction case and Sunny’s case.

Kumar had been booked in a similar case last year, wherein he assaulted a minor boy in Begampur; however, he was later released on bail, according to a TOI report. Notwithstanding the pressure, he broke down and confessed to killing and assaulting other minors during the police interrogation.

Kumar’s crime has rekindled the horror exuded by the Nithari case (2005-2006), where several young girls were assaulted, abducted, and murdered by Surinder Koli – a helper in a businessman’s house in Noida. Koli was awarded the death sentence, which was later on commuted to life imprisonment.

According to the police, a special team has been deputed to investigate the case. He has confessed to targeting 15 children and the team will be probing all the said cases, DCP Singh said.

Don’t Play Politics With Rape Incidents

Now even the rape case is taken as a mean for those political ends. Therefore, any incidents of rape are interpreted and handled in unethical ways.

Most of the political moves in the world are guided by self-interest. Here the human prudence is just trampled over and thus many hearts are hurt.  This fact is true to the letter in the Indian political sphere. Yes, our leaders easily trade their souls to meet their ends.  National interests are just bet — even with the enemy fold. Media and celebrities are often used for the job.  What more, even education is politicized, radically distorted to fit in with the “mission”.

Now even the rape case is taken as a mean for those political ends. Therefore, any incidents of rape are interpreted and handled in unethical ways. The moment a rape occurs, the political leaders take sides accordingly, so also the media. The Kathua rape had become a case of crises for the ruling party. It was a low point between the opposition parties and the government. The opposition leaders hurled the criticism against the BJP.  But it’s becoming much clearer now that the case was specifically “used” as a tool to sever the bond between the Hindu and the Muslim for the political gain. All available methods were tactfully employed then to defame the government, nay even the nation. What harm it has done is beyond the mental calculation.

Now even the rape case is taken as a mean for those political ends. Therefore, any incidents of rape are interpreted and handled in unethical ways.

Please look at the following cases which did not prompt such drama, though much more serious then the Kathus’s case. Very recently a gruesome rape was committed in Nadia district, West Bengal by a TMC activist Sheikh Bappa where a six-month pregnant relative of a BJP candidate was the victim. But no such uproar heard. In another appalling case, a Maulavi sexually abused “six children” at a Madrassa in Telangana.  But can you believe, this case totally failed to evoke the sympathy of so-called great people, nor did the media carry the news? All columnists went into hibernation. But why? Again, in Jharkhand, one dairy owner Ashif Iqbal raped his employee, tried to convert her to Islam by forcefully making her eat beef. He also threatened to kill her girl child. It never became an issue. Have you heard that another Kathua-like case happened in Khajuraho at Rajnagar about two weeks back? But no media thought it is worth the tears of the country’s citizens as an Asifa’s case.  This sadistic crime on a 3-year-old girl was committed by 19-year-old Tauhid Khan. Police have filed a case against Tauhid Khan.  Why are this time Bollywood stars not beating the breast and condemning the crime? Why are there “different prisms” to look at the same kind of crimes? Is this not a very dangerous trend? Please book the criminals who are raping the society.
