Our flagship daily news show, where hosts Shashank Bhargava and Arun George talk to in-house experts about what is going on and why you need to care about it
The rape and murder of a 27 year old vet in Hyderabad has made headlines this week, triggering a spate of protests across the country and calls for speedy justice and stricter punishment in Parliament. Over the years, the media attention and protests triggered by high-profile cases such as the 2012 Delhi gang-rape and the Kathua case have spurred laws, the focus on stricter punishment for perpetrators fails to address a systemic problem. On this episode, Telangana correspondent Sreenivas Janyala and Apurva Vishwanath, who reports on matters of law, dissect how the incident is being investigated, protests across the country, the pattern that emerges from such cases, and why demands for death penalty and castration obfuscate from tackling the issue of sexual violence in India.
