  1. Need to have pressure by public on the police to ensure justice is rendered. Editor sir please provide numbers of DCP and dc to call in by belgaum citizens. This is a shame and we need to ensure thugs cannot even dream of doing such a thing in future. Belgaum should not become the next Delhi. Let all citizens become vigilant.

  2. This should be condemned in the strongest possible language. Papers report that the girl is a minor. Dear Editor, please have a stinging editorial on this. If we keep quiet we are encouraging these SOBs.

  3. Strong punishment should be given,It should be role model of punishment which should be remembred in India

    Also my personal request to boys and girls is not to go in unknown areas,before going think about your family
