The All India Mahila Congress abhors the heinous way in which Priyanka Reddy was raped, murdered and charred to death in Hyderabad.
Her fear, pain and suffering are unimaginable and the barbaric rapists must be brought to justice and given the highest possible punishment.
Every time we lose a child or woman to rape, there is outrage and an understandable social media trend but we must go beyond it to make governments accountable and lobby for prevention, encourage reporting and push for transparent investigation.
As Priyanka Reddy’s family live through this horrific nightmare it also brings to light the need for strong deterrents, campaigns and accessible helplines for preventing such sexual violence.
The Mahila Congress stands in solidarity with Priyanka Reddy’s family and will join their fight for justice.
