She added,” A similar incident happened in the city before the vet was raped. Do you think the security charge should be questioned and they should be asked to give an answer to why they were not able to protect the area?”
“I think these people need to be shamed in front of the entire nation. People who have not done their jobs properly should be lynched,”she said.
