The heart-wrenching case of a little girl in Aligarh in India, once again underscores that our children remain highly vulnerable to heinous crimes. This is one of the most heinous cases reported in recent times. It's sickening how the accused thought of taking revenge from the family that had taken a petty loan amount.
The murder of the toddler has triggered massive outrage on social media, and demonstrations are taking place in various parts of India. People are rightly demanding a fast-track trial of the accused.  Are we living amidst human beings or beasts? How could anyone be so cruel to a child. We can sensitise our children to the threats of sexual assault, but how can we protect them from such heinous crime? It is plain disgusting; the accused must be punished and law and order must be strengthened.
