New Delhi: K Gopalakrishnan, the father of 24-year-old techie S Swathi who was murdered on Friday at Nungambakkam Railway Station in Chennai said that those who witnessed the crime acted as mute spectators.

“The only agony I can share is that people present at the station acted as mute spectators. She was lying in a pool of blood for more than 2 hours and no one turned up. Even the policemen reached the spot late. It was shocking for me and raises questions about the security of other woman commuters,” the victim’s father said.

Gopalakrishnan said that people need to change their attitude. He also revealed that his daughter was being stalked by someone.

“Every time police cannot be there for the citizens, the people should show courage and come forward,” he added.

The incident took place on Friday at around 6:30 when the victim was waiting to board a train for work.
