RIP Priyanka Reddy

Priyanka Reddy, a 26-year-old veterinarian was found raped and burnt alive in Telangana. The burnt body was found some 30km away from where she was reached lately before the brutal murder.

On Wednesday, as Priyanka Reddy was going to the hospital from her house, she was stranded near Shamshabad as her vehicle got punctured. She went missing that night and only her burnt body was found under a bridge on Thursday morning.

The family recognised her body with a locket that was found on her during the post-mortem. Her family reported that the last thing Prinyanka spoke with them over the phone was that she was afraid. It is said that her family asked her to leave the vehicle and walk past as she said that there were many unknown men.

When she was called again her phone was switched off. Police suspect that her body was probably doused with kerosene before burning. A college student was accused of the brutal incident and was presented before the media on Thursday. Ten teams were alloted by the police to find the murderer.

India has a long way to go before it gets it’s real freedom. The women in the country is yet facing a lot of brutal threats hiding themselves in the dark having been declined safety. Rape, murder, female infanticide, and whatnot to crumble her to nothing?
