Gayathri’s Murder news – few explanation

Following the whistle blowing about Gayathri’s death, there is a news report on , saying that some malicious elements of the society had spread the rumor amongst the students and this spread across tension amongst the student’s community.

Y’day evening I got an SMS about the foresaid incident from a social activist. Since I did not want to jump blindly into an issue, I waited till morning. Today morning I called and asked for some more details and relevant contact numbers. He mentioned that he got this news from a known source and it is said that the student’s are facing challenges in organizing strike, the management is putting pressure through parents, parents are not letting students to take it up etc.,

I spoke to one of the number provided in the SMS and she confirmed that the students are doubting that it could be a murder following rape, the Management tried to bribe, they are not able to hold protests, students want to organize protest outside Namakkal Collector Office but Gayathri’s father wants the strike to happen outside college.

Hearing that the student’s are not able to reach out for help and facing some obstacles, I had sent a press release stating that “It is reported that…”, “It is said that….” And I also shared the contact number provided.

Again I asked for another contact number for media to speak to someone, I was provided with a number, that student mentioned that her parents are scared and they don’t want her to involver herself in the issue. I conveyed the same to one of the media who had called me.

A sexual abuse and torture case was reported from Thoothukudi and inspite of confirming by talking to the victim, she never spoke to Media when approached. How do we understand this.

Even People with high activist-network are facing obstacles to stage protests…so how do we get away without suspecting oppression in such issues. If any of the Media or student’s organization or Human Rights Organization intervene, it ma help.

We could also suspect if these exercises could be an attempt to add strength to the recent statements from Government that social media networking sites are spreading rumors and intimidating violence etc.

We also cannot rule out that ‘influential’ People have the power to burry things. We have to wait and watch.

But if it is a rumour and some one tried to play around by falsely spreading news on women’s issues, then it is shameful.

    This is one place where students have absolutely no power in raising their voices. The management has always had the authority and they have won their ways many a times. I doubt that even if the news is true, people are afraid of the money they have invested in educating their children, and for their own benefits, they keep mum. Being there, done that, this place just has the hollow infrastructure, and they try to blind everyone with the buildings. There is nothing other than that, and if only the building defined education, they provide you with that. In the name of safety, we all revisit our school days there, which is of no use to live the world as it is.
    I can understand the hesitation from students part as they have their certificates with the Institution. Can be tricky, and they need help. Solid help.

    What is the exact name of the Institution? College Code?

    • Vivekanandha college. I don’t know the code.

        I asked because the educational mafia runs many institutions. Vivekananda College of Engineering, Vivekananda Engineering College, Vivekananda Institute of Engineering for Women, Vivekananda College of Engineering and Technology. If we know which college and the code, we can verify if the girl really failed in 6 papers.. Some of my friends told the college is closed and the accused are arrested. No proof or news on that in any main stream media.. Newspapers like The Hindu, Dinamalar are telling the entire news was a hoax.. I don’t know whom to believe.. So I need to know the results of the girl..
