Catching crime in the city

Posted by Shreyans Jain Friday, 19 April 2013 0 comments


The brutal assault and rape of a five year old girl in Delhi have stirred up the bitter memories that the incident of horrific gang rape of ‘Nirbhaya’ left behind. Once again humanity has been stained and scarred and it seems the graph plotting the crime rate in India is attaining steeper slopes. Even a whisper of attention to the gruesome incident that has come to light is sufficient to scare one out of his/her skin. Even demons would tremble to indulge in such shameful acts, leaving an innocent child soaked in her blood with ligature marks all over her body and soul. It seems we have failed to learn any lesson from the ‘Nirbhaya’ incident and this dastardly act underscores our failure in implementing the ‘stringent’ laws and the Police reforms. The cowardly and unprofessional way in which the Police have dealt with the protesters, particularly the females, is a grim reminder of the fact that nothing substantial has been accomplished in making the city safe for its citizens.

It has become a standard practice in our country. Be it a case of sexual assault, crime against the elderly, an acid attack on females or human trafficking, the politicians have only limited words to convey,

“We strongly condemn this barbaric incident of crime and we assure all our dear citizens that necessary stringent measures will be adopted immediately to punish the guilty”.
This time too, had it not been because of the intense media pressure, the perpetrator of crime would have been absconding the Police personnel accused of assaulting the protestors would have gone away with freely.

If the lawmakers and the guardians of the society stoop to such low levels and indulge in such undignified activities, where and to whom will an aam aadmi plead his case?
Neither the words of condemnation by the political class not the condolences doled out by the media persons are an answer to this ever increasing menace of crime against women. The need of the hour is to revamp our punitive system and strengthen the laws right from the grassroot level. It is incumbent on our lawmakers to put their words to action. We need stringent laws to safeguard our citizens, particularly the females from the claws of the perverted minds prowling the roads of our country in sheep’s clothing. It is necessary to instil the fear of law in their mind so that it renders all potential criminals incapable of even contemplating such monstrous acts. The social strata to which an individual belongs or his/her economic condition should not by any means become an obstacle in the path of justice. It is high time the Police are sensitized to the plight of innocent citizens for whom the Police and the Almighty are the only supreme powers that can protect them from atrocities.


Let us shun all our inhibitions and pledge to stand by our brethren in their thick and thin, to experience the same gamut of emotions when anyone of them is hurt and to make their cause our own and struggle with them with determination. Let us make this nation a heavenly place to live -  for you, for me and for the entire human race.
