A latest incident in Pudukottai, in which a seven-year-old girl was sexually assaulted and murdered, has sent shock waves across Tamil Nadu. Tamil film celebrities have demanded justice to the victim and stringent punishment to the criminal(s).
Varalakshmi Sarathkumar said, “another child has been brutally raped and murdered..you know if this is the world we are living in.. we all deserve to get #covid and die.. may be that’s gods answers to us humans..”
She added: “We don’t deserve to live.. (sic).” And Vishnu Vishal, tweeted, “Breaks my heart … We as a society are failing.. This needs to change… Enough is enough..”
Chinmayi Sripadha said, “How long we’ve been talking about all this. Yet these kind of crimes continue to happen here. Today, this news has come out. But we don’t know how many such incidents go unreported.”
“There should be awareness created within the families on these issues like sexual harassment and molestation. It is saddening to know how in many cases both victims and culprits turn out to be minors. This is even worse than COVID-19. Also, don’t share the name and photos of the victim. It is against the law. Please give them dignity in death,” she added Vishnu Vishal too has condemned the incident.
