The horrific details of the Hyderabad gang-rape and murder case have left the nation in shock. A number of B-Town actors have come out and demanded that justice be meted to the 27-year old veterinarian doctor. Riteish Deshmukh, Farhan Akhtar and Richa Chadha were among others who took to social media to vent their anger and grief.
Riteish Deshmukh took to Twitter and said that we as a society have failed ''our sister" time and again.
Condemning the rape and murder, Richa Chadha demanded the "harshest punishment" for the culprits.
An enraged Farhan took to Twitter and said that what those men did to the victim "is another dark reminder of how unsafe we’ve allowed our society to become by not delivering swift and telling justice in these cases..! Heart goes out to her family in their hours of unimaginable grief (sic)."
And what is going to be done about the minor allegedly involved if found guilty..?— Farhan Akhtar (@FarOutAkhtar) November 29, 2019
For what it’s worth, I feel that if you’re old enough to knowingly commit a crime this brutal, you’re old enough to face real consequences.
