Even though the government has implemented stricter laws against rape cases, it is heartbreaking how there is a rampant increase in sexual assault cases against women and kids.
In such an unsafe environment, how women are expected to protect themselves against the sex-deprived monsters. Recently, when a 19-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by her 24-year-old relative, she had no other option but to stab him to protect herself. As per the reports, the incident happened at Sholavaram in Tiruvallur district of Tamil Nadu.
According to the police, Ajith Kumar tried to sexually assault the teenager when she was relieving herself in a place with improper lighting. The accused was apparently drunk. He placed a knife on her neck and threatened to sexually assault the victim.
In The Act Of Self Defence
As per the TNN report, the girl pushed the man away to defend herself. She banged his head into a tree. As the knife dropped, the girl picked it up. She, then stabbed him multiple times on the neck. The accused died from his injuries. Later, the girl called the police and let them know what happened.
As per the district police officials, legal opinion has been sought and the victim may not be taken into custody.
Though the probe is on, it makes us wonder when the laws and the authorities are failing to keep the women safe, whom we can rely on other than ourselves. In the times, when there is no end to increasing crimes against women, we hope every parent teach their daughters how to fight back and protect themselves.
