JABALPUR: MP high court has upheld the death sentence of Nandkishore Valmiki who is charged with a rape of eight-year-old girl from Bhopal. On February 3 the girl who had gone to a fair with his brother was lured by the accused raped and brutally murdered.
The father of the child had reported her missing at the TT Nagar police station. Her decomposed body was recovered from the bush after the police was tipped off that a dog was seen running around with a human limb. Last seen with the girl, Valmiki later confessed his crime during the interrogation and was charge sheeted.
The district and sessions court in Bhopal had sentenced Valmiki to death on March 14, 2013 and the mater had come before the high court in appeal. Dismissing the appeal the division bench of Justice Ajit Singh and Justice Alok Aradhe held that such heinous crimes could be curbed only by taking strongest of measures against the guilty.

  1. if u commit such henious crime u should be bound to face the consequences. How will protecting such rapists / killers will reduce the crime. It should be known if u do it, u will be executed by law. Then its your choice whether u still rape and murder. But if u know after u commit such crime u will be protected by some organization like this, such crime will only increase. By the way, do any child/ women relative of this blog owner group has faced such crime themselves or not? Seem no. So its easy to go out and try to save such criminals posing to be social acitivists. Pl try to look after the uncared girl child in India. That would be real social service than wasting time to save rapists / murderers from deserved gallows.

  2. No one is protecting the rapist or killer. It is just that death penalty is not a solution to all these. They should be punished but killing them is no solution to the problems that exists in the society.
