    Hey people...she was a seven year old girl who at this minor age experienced something unacceptable . Have you guys ever thought or feel what she felt when those barbarians forced her into the vehicle? Have you ever felt what she felt when they forcefully undressed her or rather tore her dress? And what she felt when the rapists raped her...what thoughts were on her mind... The girl was too young to know anything about her body...and she was raped...! After reading this if you don't feel anything in our heart godforsaken don't post...For she needs justice and not sympathy... She will not get justice if the rapist is/are given death sentence or any kind of public humiliation. she will be justified if and only if the rapist feels guilty, he repents for his doings...and moreover he is made to feel the same what The girl felt during the mishap. The rapists should be given proper counselling to make him feel the same... And then punished for his barbaric acts by the authorities!

        I'm sure a poisonous DUMB SNAKE, LIKE YOU WILL COME BACK. YOU have to remind him every second of his life that what is RAPE AND MURDER. MURDER IS HOW YOU KILL ANIMALS FOR YOUR FOOD. Paying for a service is NOT RAPE. MENTAL RAPE IS WHEN YOU HARASS PERSON , STALK A PERSON, STEAL IDEAS FROM A PERSON, FOR YOUR CHEAP PROFITS. Do you understand ? I guess even you parents and their parents doesn't understand, so how will you understand ? they keep on sending you back again to get insulted. YOUR WHOLE SOCIETY IS THIEF ?
