Pollachi horror – The Hindu


 

In India, it takes a long time to investigate, prosecute and punish offenders in cases of sexual assault (“Horror in Pollachi”, March 15). The victim is forced to visit the court many times, which tests her patience. Even cases that are extensively covered by the media have been dragging on for years. To add to all this stress is the fact that there are threats and inducements to victims to withdraw cases. It is no wonder then that many victims give up seeking justice. In such a scenario, it is crucial for courts to make it their top priority in reducing the trauma faced by victims. We can make a beginning with the Pollachi case – it must swiftly move forward and bring justice to the victims.
