HYDERABAD: While #JusticeForPreethi was trending top on Twitter, a campaign demanding justice for Dr D. Preethi and a capital sentence for the culprit also began with a petition on change.org.
Meanwhile, her relatives approached SHRC seeking action against the city police officials, who allegedly behaved rudely with Dr Preethi’s family members at NIMS hospital, while shifting her body.
Twitter was abuzz with reactions.
“ Still the Post-graduation in India under the clutches of Ragging...Another victim!!! As usual, action is not taken on time until someone's last breath!!!! (sic)” read Kanchacheena’s tweet.
“Preeti case midha oka celebrity react avvaledhu Adhe kukka gurinchi aithe ekamga posts pedatharu (no celebrity reacted on Preethi case, but they post condolences even for a dog) (sic)”, read Pavan Keerthy’s tweet.
Another user, Tiger NS, wrote, “Nation demand Justice For Preeti. The culprits Must be Behind Bars forever(sic).”
Suraj Beera started a petition on change.org and wrote, “Requesting honourable prime minister ji to show his support so Dr Preethi gets justice and the accused get the maximum punishment, alongside for making a strict law in parliament for punishment against ragging, abuse in institutions.”
“The accused must be hanged. Immediate capital punishment is the demand. Ragging must bear severe consequences in all institutes in India and a new law must be made to give strict punishment” read the petition.
