    What happened to previous case of a lady CEO of Multi nation Company & another one of an Air Hostess? No one keeps track what happens afterwards. Recently in a case in Ahmadabad where a four years old was raped by inserting an Iron Rod in her body,her own parents turned hostile & thank goad learned judge ordered to charge them under 'POSCO". We always read these stories of atrocity by elites,higher cl & higher caste people but never here the outcome. Are those rich people buying silence of victims and witnesses? In such cases of atrocities on poor children no bail should be give and fast track courts should have quick trials. Very very sad. Where the social welfare department is involved for welfare of this child? Violation of Child labor laws and oppression of tribal girl can not be ignored. It's government's job to take care of her. Where the chief of 'Temples' ,'Math's & 'Ashram's heads? Why no one is having candle march? What is happening to our society? Why such sick people flourish in our nation?Only fault of that poor child was to be born in poor tribal family.

      What happens to such cases afterwards? In Delhi we know one MNC executive lady was arrested before and one Air hostess. Any results in those cases? Or rich buys silence?

        Surely a horrible crime and justice should take its course.But on a different not ,i found something more irrational and less human.Its the naming conventions ,in the above article the reporter has clearly mentioned the name of accused that many times so that yhe reader will make a deep note of it in mind .Note here is name of ACCUSED not guilty.Here i have a straight question to the presenter of this news is ir right calling names.what if after the trials they were found clean.Even after being proved innocent (if proved)the publicity they are getting from these media trials will always be with them.Just imagine the life of that family the recent past i have media bit immature when it comes to maintaining anonymity of the accused till the trials are over.On the contrary the entire case becomes a soup opera for others.Even in case of riots or any clash between communities,reporters usually mention the name of both parties,without thing that it may become a wild fire.I am not saying media to ban itself but after six decades of independence ,wr expect the gourth pillar of democracy to show some maturity.

          When the parents of such minor girls allow their daughters to work as domestic worker in Delhi then there was no any violation of any child law. But it is also true that rich people always exploits poor people and after that nobody ready to address their problems.It is also truth that these NGO also siphoned crores of rupees the aid got from government its examples are NGO run by Salman Khursheid etc who siphoned so many hundrads of crores but the poor never get any istance. But who cares for poor who remains poor for decades/centuries while leaders like Lalu or Mulayam or Mayawati or Nitish stake always claim we are from SC or OBC communities but they only became rich while did not bother for the problems of poor.
