Everyone was in tears when the news of a five-year-old, who was found hanging from a staircase grill, was flashed in television. It was also confirmed that he had been sexually assaulted and died from being hanged at a local mosque. The boy’s father, a poverty-stricken man who is a painter by profession, lives in a one room rented house with his wife and nine children. The father has no hope of getting any justice. Police have ensured the culprits would be arrested and the family will get justice but we all know that such cases have no results. I want to know how many more children will be molested and killed before any action is taken.
