Shame on people who were minding their own business.

What were these bystanders doing until the murderer pulled out the sickle from his bag ? If only a few had gathered around them and intervened while they were arguing, the girl would have been still alive today. R.I.P Swathi. You are in a better place now and no one can hurt you there.
