A Nirbhaya from Hyderabad: Why is there no protest? Because she is not from Delhi?

By Merlin Francis*This is our second Nirbhaya but from Hyderabad. But you wont hear about her. Because she is not from Delhi. Or maybe because protesting for her tragic death is not part of a bigger plan to overthrow a central government. But she died. She was 25 years old. Mother of a little boy. She died on May 19. After being raped by her live in partner and his friends for three months in confinement...
On the 13th her mum got a call from the boyfriend of the lady that she was throwing up blood and was asked to come down, when the mother reached the place the guy gave the mother Rs 500 and asked for the girl to be taken to the hospital and that he would follow, but the chap absconded..What later followed was a nightmare...
The girl told her mother that her phone was snatched away by her boy friend and he used to get his friends to rape her for 3 months, she was in a relationship with this chap from November 2014 and at the time of her death was 4 months pregnant....When she could not bear it any longer they gave her the chemical from batteries to drink...
Her tongue and lips were burnt and she could not give a statement...she lost her vision and her internal organs were burnt completely...Pieces of her intestines were coming out of her mouth and was bleeding profusely from all areas...
The police initially never filed a complaint when the mother approached them. An online Facebook campaign was started in Hyderabad and the police were pressurised to lodge a formal complaint...The lady though was not in a condition to give a dying declaration....Just before her death she delivered a dead 4 month old fetus...
The man is a financier and real estate agent, his family was threatening the mother to withdraw the complaint and that a sum of 10,000 rupees would be paid...The police were pissed due to the campaign and a press statement was given that she was of immoral character and that she drank whitener which caused her death...the girl when admitted told the doctor "two bhaiyyas" made me drink the chemical...
There are some activists involved in this, including My Choice and some women's groups too... The boyfriend was thrashed for three days and was produced in court, but the others are not picked up as yet as the police state lack of evidence...There is a rally planned up for May 26 and I would be a part of it...
The doctors tried all they could but had given up hope as they mentioned it was an horrific case as she was bitten all over her body and scratched too...and her private parts were mutilated... I have few short videos and pics of her in the hospital but will not be able to share it here...n
It leaves one numbed with sorrow and anger to think what savages some bastards could be.... She suffered terribly for those days she battled for life...
If the police do not act our next initiative will be to approach the State Human Rights Commission...
