When we all were sitting calmly in our respective homes and some brutes fearlessly would be committing such heinous crime in some part of our nation.

According to the PTI report, Priyanaka's charred body of was found near the culvert on the Hyderabad-Bengaluru national highway after noticed by some passers-by who alerted police. The place where her body was recovered is around 25km from the toll plaza where she was last seen, according to the cops.
Reportedly, the deceased had gone to the hospital and returned home on Wednesday evening.
The agency report also suggested that she again left around 5.50pm for another clinic visit and parked her two-wheeler near Shamshabad toll plaza from where she boarded a shared cab. In the FIR her younger sister stated that she got a call from Priyanka at around 9.22pm when she told her that she stuck at the toll plaza as someone offered her help saying that her scooter had a flat tyre and took her the two-wheeler. She also added that her sister also told her that after a while the person returned saying all shops were closed and he will try to get it repaired in some other place.
A warning call ignored, the deceased's sister in her complaint has said that Priyanka was scared as there was a lorry in few metres away, where she was also offered help by some of the people who stood near the vehicle. After a while when her sister called her again at around 9.44pm Priyanka's phone was switched off following which her family informed the police and a missing complaint was registered.
The incident is quite familiar, with the Nirbhaya incident that triggered nationwide ourage, a pre planned trap hatched by some brutes at night. A young, confident and aspiring 23-year-old female physiotherapist (Nirbhaya) was gang raped and underwent fatal assault on a unfortunate chilling wintery night of 16 December 2012 in Munirka, Delhi. The incident took place in a private bus in which she was travelling with her friend, who was also brutally beaten and thrown from a running bus. Later, the accused were arrested and punished.
Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy said outside of Parliament addressing the press, "The Ministry of Home Affairs will send an advisory to all states as a precautionary measure so that no such incident takes place in future."
Meanwhile, the Centre on Friday said that soon an advisory will be sent to all states across the nation to take precautionary steps to check crime against women following the murder of the young veterinarian.
Yet, another, young and confident veterinary doctor underwent the same horrific circumstances feasibly, in an another city of India. Now it is to see how fast and neccesary actions are to be taken to punish the culprits.
