    hopefully speedy justice is given. the trauma will be haunting for the rest of their lives for sure :( should be punished in the harshest way possible..... ppl should be scared to even think of such things. ppl are fighting for cows. ppl are lynching in the name of cows. why aren't ppl bothered about the safety of women???? sad to see that it happened in my city which was largely a peaceful city.
