Belthangady: 17-year-old Girl Raped, Brutally Killed

Belthangady: Police Suspect Murdered Girl was Gang-raped

Daijiworld Media Network - Belthangady

Belthangady, Oct 11: The brutal rape and murder of young Sowjanya near Pangala is now suspected to be a gang rape.

The inspection of the crime spot has reportedly given clear indication to the police that at least four to six persons may have attacked Sowjanya.

It is said that Sowjanya had alighted from the bus at Netravati bus stand and was on her way home, when she was dragged into the forest area by her perpetrators. Her hands were tied with her uniform shawl, and her clothes were found to be torn. There was mud on legs, indicating signs of struggle. She was reportedly strangled to death.

This is the second case of murder in Dharmasthala region in less than a month. On September 21 a double murder had taken place wherein Narayana, who was mentally ill, and his sister Yamuna had been battered to death. The police have failed to unearth any clue or make any progress in the case. In another case, in Puttur, a man by name Military Ashraf was caught for the brutal murder of Sowmya Bhat, a student. He escaped from the jail and is yet to be traced.

Belthangady: 17-year-old Girl Raped, Brutally Killed

Belthangady, Oct 10:  In a shocking incident, a 17-year-old girl was found brutally murdered near Pangala in Dharmasthala, on Wednesday October 10.

The deceased has been identified as Sowjanya, daughter of Chandappa Gowda, a PWD contractor and resident of Pangala. Sowjanya was a second year PU student of SDM College, Ujire.

It is learnt that her parents lodged a missing report in Belthangady police station when she did not return home after class on Tuesday October 9 evening. A search operation was launched, but she could not be found.

Sources told Daijiworld that her body was found on Wednesday among the bushes beside the road leading to Pangala. She was wearing her uniform and her bag was found nearby. Police suspect that she has been raped and murdered.

Her hands were fastened with the shawl which she was wearing, and there was mud on her legs showing signs of a struggle. Her clothes were torn and she was reportedly strangled to death. 

Also, her gold chain and earrings were left intact, making it clear that robbery was not the intention.

Sowjanya was the second among Chandappa's four daughters and one son. Her elder sister is married.

SP Abhishek Goyal, Puttur inspector Sudarshan and Belthangady SI Yogish Kumar visited the spot.

Belthagady police have registered a case. Investigations are on.

Yours is a very racist comment which is no better than this rape and murder that has taken place. Hate speech leads to violence. Rape and murder is violence too, hence your comment has done nothing to overcome violence. You think you are morally better than Africans, I wonder what makes you think so. There are good and bad in every part of the world, hence generalization of Africans as sub-human is very derogatory for which you need to apologize and be sorry for in your heart. I know many Africans who are very good people and I have come across many incidents in India which would put those involved at the other extreme hence what gives you the right to think Indians are a more moral people than Africans? Shame on you for thinking you are morally better than Africans.

It is real saddening to know that the culprits have still been untraced thanks to inept police of Dakshina Kannada district. In this technology world, it is easy to track the culprits with their last mobile conversation, etc. Why cant police track the mobile call/user details of the accused at the time of crime? If one is caught, the rest will follow. How powerful the people are, it is time for people to act. Come on, RSS, VHP, Bajrang Dal, Ram Sene, fight now for this cause if you truly respect and care about Hindus. The police who handled the case should be dismissed from service for dereliction of duty.

The culprits should be tortured to death the same way the girl was killed. This will be a future lesson to all rapists. It is a shame that so many girls have gone missing/killed or raped in the area, police are yet to solve the cases? Why do we need police then? I sincerely request the people who have seen the girl being kidnapped come out in open for God sake? Who knows, tomorrow their kith and kin or own daughter might get raped like this.

Hanging is not suitable for those ANIMALS. They should be tortured to death the very next moment their crime is proved. They should be tortured for the same period as they tortured that innocent girl. This is necessary because they should realize their mistake and that they were so cruel to do so. If this happens with their sister/mother/wife..., how would they react? Would they keep quiet? If not, then why do they do this with others? If the govt. cannot change the law, then let the culprits be handed over to us. V will take care of them..........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway this should not be repeated......

All the school children and college students of Belthangady Taluk should protest and fight for the justice till the culprit hang in front of public. Dear girls please protect yourself and be careful in every moment of your life. May Sowjanyas soul rest in peace.

Some people have mentioned here about the pepper spray / knife in their bag.... but can somebody explain that, when the girl is alone and 4-5 people attacking her together, to whom she will use the spray or to whom she'll stab the knife? The lady will ot have enough strength to handlge more than one so called animals. unless she learn some skills like karate...which is not possibleat all...anyway, God save all the women in india.

The public, police, school management, family members, relatives of the victim, neighbours, friends, all of these will keep quiet? They can easily escape? Whereever you guys are hiding wait and watch, you will die a death you never even dreamt off.

At the same time we cannot go and kill someone in revenge . For that we have law enforcing agencies - Roshan Braganza..

If this happens to one of the family members of ours will we wait to rush to the political party or the communal leaders of our choice for help…. Don’t we take help from any one willing to help us. You are such a narrow minded person. It is just bcoz of people like you and many more like you these sins are getting repeated…… wake up Roseline, Wake up!!!!!

@ arman , Being democratic is not only secular. Its our constitution . @ prasheesh kumar , midieval laws don't apply in our country. Peaple talk in emotional outburst but law has to take its course. @ Lydia lobo , kadri Brothels houses oldest profession and all r not forced or traffiked . There r plenty of peaple make living out of it. So power hungry beasts can visit here and get whatever they want. It can be one of the way to keep society clean. Its already in place and everybody knows it. Lastly , i agree we all should take care our teen wives ( :)) , sis , parents , at the same time we cannot go and kill someone in revenge . For that we have law enforcing agencies.

Thursday, October 11, 2012

In India ,every crime is an opportunity for

Police,Lawyers,Judges,Politicians to make money.Law is

just for name sake.No body can help.Unless we change our

constitution, We can not expect anything from this

government and corrupt people.
We must try to protect ourselves.I agree with one of

the readers who said, girls must keep Pepper spray

handy.We see lot of advertisement of Libido enhancing

sprays like "Japani Taila"in vernacular news papers.Why

not producers of Pepper sprays advertise it, which is

very useful for self defence?.

Who can hear and understand a mothter CRY and suffering NO one NONE.

So sad to hear this. May her soul rest in peace. May God grant strength to her family members to bear this loss. This is unconsolable tragedy. Those who raped and killed this innocent girl have no right to live in the society. The main reason for all these crimes is our law is so liberal to rapists and criminals. We should have strict laws to punish the guilty. Life imprisonment will not serve any purpose. These criminals apply for mercy and get away due to their good behaviour in jail. Think about girl's family. There should not be any mercy for rapists and criminals. They should be uted immediately. Human rights followers will cry as violation of human rights whenever they ute the criminals. But where are these human right activists when rape and murder takes place? Sincere request to Karnataka Law Minister to take this matter seriously. Also request daiji to follow up the matter and bring to the attention of law minister. Rape cases are increasing day by day along with murders. Hope the law authorities wake up this time before its too late and take timely action. These criminals should not be given bail and lawyers who defend them should also be punished.

When you hear about such crimes, you can be sure that man is slowly regressing into an animal. Poor girl, even if she was alive she would be traumatised for life.
Why cant we shoot such rapists and murderers immediately once they are identified as the guilty ones.
Police have to idnetify these animals at the earliest otherwise more such incidents will take place.

Society in general must creat awareness among parents and measures required to be adopted on young girls while travelling through secluded areas. This young girl lost her life because she was passing near the forest area alone.The parents have moral responsibility to take care of their young daughters. I am sure the police will act quickly to catch the culprits and hang them for their heinous crime.

Mr. Briganza,

'These type of predators should be diverted to brothels , where its legal'

Why brothels ? Are there ex-rapist men to entertain the newly arriving rapists ? No ! Brothels house helpless, abducted/kidnapped and forced women to entertain. If you are offering sympathy to a rapist I don't think any man will support you. Awareness at lowest level is alright but forgiving a rapist is like exposing our own family women to brutality. Don't ever expect this will happen in a society where men guard their mother/sister/wife with love and reverence, they don't wait for a change to auction them !

nagesh nayak, bangalore
Thursday, October 11, 2012







in sowjanya's case several questions raise :

1. whether she was kidnapped by unknown persons.

2. whether she went with known person .

3. what was her regular route to & fro school from her residence.

4.who are her close friends.

5. whether she is going alone everyday.

police dept.. should make thourough enquiry & catch the culprit immediately.

Roshan Braganza-Mumbai, the legal jargons like - Democratic Country, Law of the land prevails, equal opportunity for fair trial, - are only the jugglery of words fit for so called intellectual circus. Just let me know how many Rape & Murder accused have been convicted in India in last 10 years where more than 1000 such gory crimes have taken place ?
The Dead victim cannot come and give witness, and the witness of others will not stand cross questioning, and our Law itself is with huge loop holes.
There is a big Queue of Lawyers waiting eagerly to defend such monster. Noted Advocate Ram Jethmalani himself is defending the culprit in one such high profile Rape case of N.Delhi.

So many barbaric comments . Death punishment , public castration , Stoned to death , life imprisonment. We should understand its a democratic country and law of lands prevail. Our law gives equal opportunity to even dreaded convicts to get fair trial . This type of incidents only be stopped by proper awareness at grass root level , not by killin someone in public. A sexual hungry beast never think of consequences , when they attack someone. These type of predators should be diverted to brothels , where its legal.

Even the cruel animals hunt the victims for survival but use sense in their physical relationship!

very sad because after 5 days missing case police not able to find girl. required more and more well educated police officer, all police station must have computerized documents. including scaner, printer, photocopy machines, web cam, internet all police officers must be trained latest computer programme to tackle crime.
All police officer must looks like realy police man, not like joker.
all pending case to be solved quickly.

Train your self with martial arts, carry chilli powder, and kick men attacking at their centre with your foot/knee or elbow, which will give a deadly blow to the beasts attacking you and dial No 100(police Control room) in case of attack. Carry mass protection against rape , gange rape and molestation. Protect your self! it is your right!.

Here everyone has rightly condemned the ghastly inhuman act of the Rapist and prescribed harshest Punishment for him.
But we have big gang Lawyers in our Society, who will run to the Rapist with Vakalatnama as soon as he is apprehended by the Police and take his case and defend him Shamelessly.

Dear Jagadish,
We love our constitution and we are not asking to adopt sharia law in INDIA but to stop these crimes adopt such punishment inorder to reduce crime, for eg rapist should be killed in public by stoning to death so that people should think twice before committing such crime.

The culprit must be taken around the streets chained so others are aware of what happens to them if such horrendous crime is repeated.

It is a very shocking incident and the culprit should be severely punished so that nobody dare do suck sadistic act again. May God give the parents of the victim strength to bear this great shock?
May her soul rest in peace.

Very cruel act. Whoever did this type of unhuman act he should be hanged in public place so that next time whoever wants to do this type of act he should think 1000 times. Once Mr. L.K. Advani told that rapist should be hanged. If we implement shariya law in this case definatly it will create terror in those peoples heart who want to do these anti-social, dirty act.

Offcourse India should have Saudi Law so tht culprit should be hanged in public or cut is head.

Lancy Moras, Moushami, it will be inappropriate to call that Cruel Rapist as "Earthworm" ?
Because Earth worms are very harmless and very very useful to our nature. Besides, Earthworms are 'Bi-Sexual', which means each earthworm has both Male & Female Organs, and they don't have do depend on another Earthworm for Procreation. Every Earthworm can procreate itself. So in the world of Earthworms there is nothing called Rape.

May the Poor girl's soul Rest in Peace.

Anyone who has done it should be hanged to death in public, this kind of act is not good for the state and country.

In india, in most of the places the houses are far from the main road and the girls have to walk alone to colleges and school. In such instances, these dirty people try to take advantage to eve tease the girls or indulge in any other filthy act. In such cases parents should take the responsibility of their girls. These kind of barbaric acts can be stopped only with Sharia law, no other punishment will help to bring down the rape cases in india. Whoever has done this act, he should be burnt alive in public.

I am shocked to hear it happen in our District of Dakshina Kannada. It will continue to happen till this corrupt government is there. This is a phenomenon peculiar to BJP government in Karnataka
