What is it with men in this country? How low of them to rape and kill the one and only source of human life on earth...women. To top that, they rape children in public...these men aren't worth living. Really ... an eye for an eye is what they should get ... familly punishment and torture should be approved in that case.

All we need to see is how the case is handled in the court. I hope these Rapists are convicted for the crime they committed. Hats off to Goa Police but let's sit with hands crossed till the court has its say. Punishment should be death!

The present Goan political scenario are bunch of thieves...... none of them are fit to call a real politician, who will save their State. By the time Goa is out of Goan hands, the present politicians will make loads of cash in their bank and will not bother about the future of Goa. Money is Power and Money Can Buy Everything. Look into the history of all the present politicians.... all are big scammers. All have created history in the past.
