We have built up an environment for our daughters where they fear some or the other form of atrocity against them with every breath of theirs. And that nobody would bother to respond to their heart-wrenching cries for help when they would be molested on streets in broad daylight, is what adds up to their horror.
But not everyone is alike. At least, dogs ain’t the same. That’s what a pet dog from Madhya Pradesh proves by saving the 14 YO daughter of its house from her two rapists.
The incident took place in Madhya Pradesh’s Sagar district in a village of Khurai tehsil under Motinagar police station on Friday night when the girl went out to fetch some hay as per her grandmother’s instructions. She was abducted and taken to a room where fodder is stored by Reshu Ahirwar and his friend Puneet, who are already infamous for the instances of their disgraceful behavior towards women and was gang-raped by both the men.
The girl was shouting for help when her pet dog heard her out and sprang to her rescue. As Puneet was pinning down the girl her pet dog bit Puneet’s leg and drove him away. Hearing the dog’s loud barks a crowd gathered at the crime spot and the victim was then taken to the hospital. However, the incident came into light on Sunday for the girl’s family was afraid the two accused could plan something even more outrageous as a revenge. Now both the beasts are under arrest under IPC section 376 and POCSO act after the girl filed her complaint, says Vipin Tamrakar, SHO of Motinagar police station.
Should we be happy that at least some among us still care to safeguard our daughters or be ashamed that those who have kept up the spirit of goodness aren’t the ones among us?
