Whether it is #PriyankaReddy in Hyderabad, #Roja in Tamil Nadu or the law student gangraped in Ranchi,we seem to be losing it as a society. It has been 7 yrs to the gut-wrenching #Nirbhaya case & our moral fabric continues to be in pieces.We need stricter laws.This needs to STOP!

What those men did to #Priyanka_Reddy is another dark reminder of how unsafe we’ve allowed our society to become by not delivering swift and telling justice in these cases..!
Heart goes out to her family in their hours of unimaginable grief.

Her only crime was she trusted these men who promised to fix her scooty.Perpetrators are given the harshest punishment, they don’t belong in society. They won her trust and then brutalised her. Treated her like a thing, not a human being.
Condolences to family#priyanakareddy

It doesn't matter that it was "only 9pm" . It doesn't matter that she was "just returning from work". It doesn't matter that she was a doctor. What matters is that our women regardless of their timing, purpose and occupation need to feel SAFE #PriyankaReddy

The entire nation is outraged with the incident except for Telangana state Home Minister, Mohammad Mahmood Ali. The minister blames the victim for her assault.

For the uninitiated, Priyanka Reddy, a veterinarian doctor from Hyderabad was returning from work after a tiring day. She was stranded on an isolated road at around 9 pm because her scooty got punctured. She was stopped, forced to seek help and come along with two men who ‘scared’ her. Priyanka was constantly on call with her sister P Bhavya Reddy until 9:22 pm. It was only after 9:44 pm that her family realised that Priyanka was in trouble.
The police found Priyanka’s body in a completely charred state under the culvert at Chatanpally in Shadnagar . Alcohol bottles, a gold pendant and a half-burnt scarf lying around the area proved that the innocent 27-year-old was raped brutally. It was later discovered that the girl had been sexually assaulted before being burnt to death.
The arrested individuals also stated that they had put her body on fire to get rid of any evidences. Thy also parked her broken scooty somewhere 11-kms away from the culvert to avoid any suspicion. They also claimed that it was a pre-planned as the had already spotted Priyanka parking her scooty at the ORR Toll Plaza on Thursday morning.
