Death of Rape-Victim Aruna Shanbaug Reveals Dark Side Of Humanity

The recent death of rape-victim Aruna Shanbaug has once again revealed the dark side of humanity. Aruna Shanbaug, a Mumbai hospital nurse who was sexually assaulted and left with severe brain damage by a ward attendant of the same hospital in November 1973,  died at 08:30 a.m. on Monday, May 18, 2015 – a whopping more than four decades after the shocking, brutal incident.

Aruna Shanbaug was 25 years old nurse at the King Edward Memorial Hospital in Mumbai when the ward attendant, named Sohanlal Bhartha Valmiki, caught hold of her in an isolated area of the hospital, sodomized her, raped her and then tried to kill her by strangulating her with a dog's chain. While Sohanlal failed to kill her, the strangulation cut the oxygen supply to her brain.

She survived for another 42 years, till last Monday, but her survival was crueler than death. She spent the rest of her life in a persistent vegetative state in hospital; she was forcibly fed twice a day. She was in unbearable misery, but the Indian Supreme Court (SC) rejected a plea to allow her to die because Indian constitution doesn’t allow euthanasia.

Where is the guilty, the rapist - Sohanlal Bhartha Valmiki?
