The girlwho was the victim of train rape incident which happened on Wednesday (2-02-11) died today morning at Thrissur (Trichur) medical college, The girl named Soumya (22) from Manjakkadu Shornur was working in a super market at Cochin and the incident happened when she was returning to home on Wednesday night. When she was only person in the ladies compartment, Govindaswamy (30) who try to steal her bag and when she resisted he pushed her out of the train which caused her a severe head injury and then the convict dragged the lady to some distance and raped her. After an hour of searching when found her she was seriously injured and admitted to Trissur medical college hospital, Doctors tried their best to save her life but she died today (Sunday) morning.
This incident should be an eye opening to the Keralaites regarding the safety of an Individual. Any human being is a societal human being and when you shrink that reality into your gender, you have to face the problem of safety and discrimination. So it has to be mandatory for every human being to travel in group rather than individually. There is ladies compartment in the train and it is constituted to avoid the harassment of the men in rush hours and it is not meant for lone journey. So the women travelers have to learn to travel in group. It is commonsense that if there is no other person in a compartment, the traveler has to disembark that compartment and join with other persons in other compartment.
Secondally the man was trying to rape this girl in the train itself. According to police, the man had attacked the girl in the deserted women’s compartment as the train was nearing its destination. She had tried to free herself from his grip and come to the doorway. However, the man pushed her out and also followed her as the train was slowing down. This shows that this handicapped man was eying for sex with a women in his life. The basic desire of a man to have sex doesn't have any window in the traditional atmosphere of the Kerala. So the Kerala should have a street for commercial sex workers to run legal brothel in the vicinity of Kerala. This will reduce the incidents of this kind in the train. Because the Bombay and Pune and other metropolitan cities have these kinds of streets and womens are travelling in these cities freely even in the late night. So it is high time for the Keralaites to think in this line and increase the social security rather pretending the duplicity and bogus status.
