Bhubaneswar, December5(LocalWire):The gunning down of four accused by cops in the case of rape and murder of a woman veterinarian in Telengana has been hailed by people various spectrum in Odisha.
The perpetrators of the dastardly crimes are the blot of the society. These wrongdoers are social evil.
It’s heartening to note that they have been removed from society, said Jayashree Mohapatra, a Bhubaneswar-based social activist.
Regardless of the circumstances under which the police shot them down and legality of encounter killing, it’s a welcome step.
Hopefully, it will act as deterrent to people who nurture barbaric mindset towards women, said another activist Abanti Behera.
They deserve death. The court would have hanged them. The police have meted out instant punishment towards them. We young girls are extremely happy, said Bhubaneswar-based college student, Arunima Rout.
The biggest challenge is that whether such deterrent action can the change the mindset of people towards women.
The courts have sentenced rapists to death in the past. But cases of rape are still on the rise particularly in Odisha, observed a executive of private firm, Ashok Senapati from Cuttack city.
