Media Reports: Candle Light Vigil for Swathi

The News Minute:

“A young woman was killed in broad daylight with none coming to her rescue brings shame to this city. I didn’t know her personally but now a fear that this could happen to me or someone else has crept in,” said Bharathi.

Seetharaman K, the organizer of the event told TOI that they are not there to make speeches and then go back about their lives. They will continue to mount pressure and campaign on social media till the criminal is arrested.

Deccan Chronicle:

“Public morality at this level is a dangerous sign, and it’s time to question ourselves as it could have happened to anyone. Media, while playing a vital role in bringing the news out and pressure the authorities to investigate should not indulge in character assassination of the slain girl,” said Alagunambi Welkin.

Daily Thanthi:

சுவாதிக்கு நடந்தது போல் நாளைக்கு நம்மில் ஒருவருக்கு கூட நடக்கலாம். இனிமேல் வருங்காலத்தில் இதுபோல் ஒரு சம்பவத்தை நடக்க விடக்கூடாது. ஐ.டி. நிறுவனத்தில் வேலைபார்ப்பவர்களுக்கு பொருளாதாரத்தில் உயர்வு இருந்தாலும், பாதுகாப்பு என்பது இல்லை.

எனவே ஐ.டி. நிறுவன ஊழியர்களுக்கு பாதுகாப்பை உறுதி செய்ய வேண்டும். அரசிடம், தொழிலாளர் நல ஆணையத்திடமும் ஐ.டி. நிறுவன ஊழியர்களின் பாதுகாப்பை உறுதி செய்ய கோரிக்கை விடுத்தோம். ஆனால் இதுவரை நடவடிக்கை எடுக்கவில்லை.

The Hindu:

“We are shocked by the fact that the body was on the platform for quite a while and that no one came forward to help despite trains continuing to ply and commuters present there. As a society, more sensitivity is needed and we hope that people step forward in such situations,” said Alagunambi Welkin
