    I have no comments but my hats off to the police department who have nabbed the killer of that innocent working girl. I hope the others involved in this murder are caught and justice is served to the victim and her family.

    This only shows that our women and kids are not safe. Not one culprit has been given a death sentence since the man in authority occupied the chair. Only lectures after lectures. But all seam to be happy.

    Because we depend on them for unskilled work.. We can't clean our own houses/dig the ground/in construction work/so on.. We need their services.. Just have a glance you will understand. It's become a fashion.. We go to parks/gym/aerobics to shed our sweat 😅 congratulations to our Nisha James and the police personnel who did investigation.

    There is nothing wrong in going to outer places on search of job but the problem is with our behaviour. If parents instill good values in their children at a small age itself, later-on trips to police station or jails will not happen.

    Law comes at a later stage, after the crime is committed - those who give birth have some responsibilities that the law cannot do.

    Cynthia and Jennifer
    I agree with you, but one thing I want to say, that parents sometimes, cannot be blamed fully. Howsoever responsibly the parents bring up, the children, when out of house, in the world and company, can become anything good or bad. Hence, in today's world, we have to pray that our daughters are not raped and our sons do not rape.

    Santhan, yes.. It's a good comment.. From my point of view I can say that parents always teach good things for their children.. Money in hand, friends influence the behavior. Secondly, parents of these unskilled people do not have time to give their children.. Their life is hard. Get up in the morning to to work.. Come back and do the household chores..what their children are doing in their absence they won't come to know.. They grow like this.

    We go to bangalore because we are qualified enough to get a job there ... We don’t go there n dirty the place .. we don’t go there n create nuisance on the streets .. we don’t go there n grab alll govt jobs and make a living by accepting bribe. Understand the difference ...
