The rape and murder case of Disha garnered a lot of public attention and there are a lot of cases that are wantedly ignoring and social activists are trying to take them to the attention of the public. Chinmayi, the voice of Samantha who is active on social media is trying to get the attention of the public to one similar case.
"I request the attention on this 2-year-old rape case that has been closed as suicide in Kurnool, Andhra Pradesh. Though everyone is using her original name in Telugu Social media - ‘Geeta’ (name changed) was a 15-year-old assaulted and murdered in school." she posted.

Though everyone is using her original name in Telugu Social media - ‘Geeta’ (name changed) was a 15 year old assaulted and murdered in school.
Also, Chinmayi quoted a matter that she sourced from a popular online news website. “A 5-member committee under the Collector clearly pointed to sexual assault and murder – and yet, the police chose to drop those charges, and instead called it abetment to suicide.” shared the dubbing artist cum singer.
She added, “Geeta.. complained to her parents earlier about harassment by two men – the sons of the school Correspondent Vallapureddy Janardhan Reddy. She’d told them that Harshavardhan Reddy (43), and Diwakar Reddy (41) would trouble her in the night. She didn't want to stay in the hostel. But despite the initial case of sexual assault, the case was derailed, although forensic evidence showed that sperms were present in the victim’s private parts."
We have to see if people take this up seriously and fight against the negligence of the cops. More developments in the story will follow soon.
