Classmates who rape and burn to death are not Spurned Lovers, they are dangerous, violent criminals.

Swarup shared this link.  Classmates rape girl, burn her to death.

On Saturday afternoon, the girl was alone at home when three of her college mates came to visit her with an invite for a function. Once inside, they bolted the door, poured kerosene over her and set her ablaze, police said. 

Her screams alerted neighbours and an uncle of the victim, who rushed inside and nabbed the accused. Residents informed the police, who took the three into their custody. 

 

And once again, 

1. Like 98% of sexual assaults against women [Link], the rapists and brutal murderers were not strangers.

2. Like 98% of sexual assault victims, she was not in a dark and lonely place.

3. Like 98% of sexual assault cases, the assault appears to be preplanned.

And sadly,

4. Like almost 98% of the times, the Police first attempted to ‘understand’ the crime (with the ‘spurned lovers’ angle)

The Police should investigate the history and backgrounds of such criminals, because young adults ‘learn’ how safe it is to rape and burn women in India when they see the victims being blamed when they sexually harass (‘eve teas’), molest and stalk them.

The Police might find that maybe one of them has a tendency, like Ram Singh in Delhi Bus Gang Rape case, to ‘lose his temper’? 

This is why all acts of sexual harassment should be taken seriously, even when there is no grievous physical injury.

Do you think all those men who feel entitled to women’s ‘Yes’ for whatever they have in mind (marriage, obedience, sex, going out for coffee, faith in their better judgment) become violent criminals?

It’s dangerous that we associate aggression and violence with ‘manliness’, and such ideas of manliness as normal human behaviour.

Study finds 98% of India rape victims knew their attacker.

“As long as the men do not understand that they CANNOT and WILL NOT get away with such behavior and criminal acts, the rape culture will not go away”

Yet another rape that was not about lust but about aggression, revenge and putting the victim in her place.

  1. This is evil, when there are rules that are applied to all when such incidences occur, men will think twice before attempting any sexual assault/harassment ..

  2. And what if they are only 17 years and 300-350 days old at the time of the crime ? Then they are not violent criminals but just misled minors ?

  3. This is so brutal and cold blooded. The scary part is the police trying to ‘understand the criminals’. Perhaps the families and neighbors will also try to ‘understand’ the criminals, thinking ‘the girl mislead them’. I hope that at least the courts are objective and follow the law and due process.

  4. Its horrible to even read this, I cannot even imagine what the girl went through. And it has nothing to do with being educated or not (the kind of education we have in India). Changing mentality of people is going to take a long time and till then atleast for the time being judiciary can play a big role. Creating a fear of the law can bring down a lot of such crimes.

    I don’t know as I have not met anyone in my life who would condone such act. When you said “It’s dangerous that we associate aggression and violence with ‘manliness’, and such ideas of manliness as normal human behaviour.” If there are people who really really associate such things with manliness, then I seriously pity them. Its highly possible that they are actually very insecure misogynists, the kind who would piss on their pants 10 times before talking to any woman on the street. So just going and assaulting them is their “manliness”.

  6. It is absolutely a premeditated attack and just to hear that the police are defending him is just an example of misogyny.
