I begged and begged...But nobody helped!

These are the words of a mother who has lost her teen age daughter in the most heinous of ways in Moga, India.

Today on BBC.com, I read a piece of news that made me feel sick. According to the reports, a 14 year old girl was molested while travelling on a with her mother and brother. After repeated attempts, the girl and her mother were pushed off the bus.

The poor girl died while her mother has suffered serious injuries. What is happening to the world? We are worse than any animals or wild beasts really.

This incident happened on a moving bus probably travelling from one place to another. There were other passengers on board. How sickening is this. How can people remain silent spectators when such heinous crimes are being committed

All India was in uproar when a 23 year old medical student was brutally raped and thrown off the bus in Delhi in 2012. Laws were passed, heated debates were held, TV programmes were conducted but nothing touches the lives of common people it seems.

I wish death penalty was adopted world over for rapists of minors and children under 16 years. I wish they are executed publicly on TV.

But sadly, they will languish in jails or get released on "insufficient evidence" and girls like keep on getting raped. I feel sick!

If I ever witnessed something like that in a public place, I could not remain silent. I would be calling the police and 911!

Our buses are bad and often overfull, but not as bad as that. I often wonder how I would react if some moronic male tried that with me - I think I'd probably break my own rules about not picking a fight with anyone and attempt to hit, kick or otherwise seriously hurt them. The worst thing about it is that here in the UK we heard nothing of this story. Our BBC.co.uk site currently only contains news of the Duchess of Cambridge's baby, the election and the Nepal earthquake. Given the significant Indian population settled in this country, I would have expected better of the BBC. But then the bbc.com site IS often better for hard news than our own version. I often read the BBC Futures articles on bbc.com because we have nothing like that on co.uk.

That is absolutely horrible that no one on the bus tried to help them and that the mother was thrown off the bus.

That is terrible. Surely the bus driver has a responsibility to drive the bus to a police station or to summon help.

Such a tragedy. I feel like sometimes the things that people do bad to one another makes them no more evolved than the typical dog.

This is unbelievable. It would break my heart to be in this mom's position. If I were to witness such a thing, no way would I be able to sit and do nothing.
