I didn’t want to kill him you know…
As I entered the small hut from where I had to carry over a piece of old furniture to Lakri Bazar, I saw the paintings of my 9-year-old daughter. NUDE. I couldn’t be wrong.
My blood boiled, yet I kept mum.
After I delivered the old furniture to its destination, I came back to the same place to confront him. It was 11ish of a cold winter night. A Perfect Time For Me.9
Once I entered the same premises, I saw that man having sex with his wife out on a chowki of their house.
I recognized him because I knew the man who…
I couldn’t control my anger. Extreme wrath was taking over me. I walked back to my truck tiptoed where I had a jack lever, I dragged it back there and hit him on his head from behind.
Once, twice, thrice… After 3 strikes he fell on his wife…
Weirdly, his wife didn’t say a word. Neither did she express fear from me nor had an expression of pain. What she had was an expression of disgust on her face. She pushed his dead body with the same expression aside.
“Run away from here before anyone sees you and leave that thing here”, she told me. I don’t know why I nodded my head and the jack fell from my hand.
She picked it up and then she struck him with it again, and again and again. Then she took off her marital possessions and threw them on his body. She also rubbed off the vermilion from her forehead.
I encountered the entire scene silently. Then I turned back and started walking.
As I walked away, I had a smile of relief as this was the last rapist of my daughter whom I took out.
My 9-year-old daughter was ganged raped and brutally murdered by 6 beasts a year back.
Today finally her soul will be able to Rest In Peace.

Wow…I know that the legal system in India sucks but taking the into your own hands is not the answer. How pathetic it is that grown men want to rape a 9-year-old. I think we should have the ancient.. eye for an eye type of justice..The rapists should be brought in public and get his too chopped off. But then its a man ‘s world and such punishments are too good to be true.
Yup. Hope u liked the tale.

Kaveri Chhetri says
My God! your tale is so vivid… i felt like i was watching a movie. I wish this were just story and wouldn’t happen in real life.
Thanks Kaveri. Glad you liked it
There should be a law of Capital punishment for this.
For the father and rapist?
He didn’t want to kill but the man got what he deserved. The law fails parents like him and taking matters in their own hands is the best they can do to find peace. This was chillingly real and the perfect thriller. Well-written.
Thanks glad you like it
Pamela Mukherjee says
Very well written. Loved the way you ended the story. Curious to know what happened to others?
Glad you liked it…
Ritu Bindra says
Beautifully written. And a disturbing reality. It may sound crude, but often this is the only justice families can hope for. People have become desensitized to the rapes of minors. Laws are in place but rarely is justice served.
Thanks. Glad you liked it
Flavia Cutinho says
I was just glued to d screen, liked the story,
Madhu Bindra says
I always enjoy reading your stories. You know how to keep your readers hooked. The ending was shocking but this is unfortunately a reality.
Dark. To rape and murder a child is abominal. Anger and revenge can make us take extreme steps.
But I wonder what is the story with the wife – did she know he was a rapist. Or had he tortured her too and she was a victim of marital rape?
Sonia dogra says
That was spine chilling.
Glad you liked it
Shail Thosani says
Such a powerful and impactful story. I wish every rapist was punished harshly so that no one ever thought of commiting such a heinous crime ever.
Zenobia Merchant says
What a hard hitting story and am so glad justice was served to the departed soul. Need more such stories.
Thanks. Glad u liked it
A very hard hitting piece. capital punishment is the need of the hour for women’s safety.
Meetali Kutty says
This is so true to life and heartbreaking. Sometimes citizens feel they have to take law into their own hands when people get away with such heinous crimes so completely understand the sentiment of this tale
Bhawna Shah says
There are lots of such stories around the world, small kids gangraped and murdered brutally. Most of their souls are still waiting for justice . Here Indian system is very poor. Recently a 10 years old boy was brutally murdered where killers had inserted iron nail into his eye and one eye ball was out of the eye socket.:(
Jhilmil D Saha says
Well while I was reading I could just visualize every word. Justice well served by a father. When law fails, you gotta be the outlaw to serve justice.
Kashish Mahtani says
I read this, mouth agape and covered in goosebumps! You’re a wonderful writer!
Sindhu Vinod Narayan says

Rakhi Jayashankar says
I can feel her anger and I relate with her. He anger, frustration you have portrayed it so well.
Thanks. Her and his both.
Pooja Jha says
I loved the story, precise, short yet conveys exact message, I wish all these rapists could have be killed and it should be just a case of self defence with minor or no penalty because government or law cannot do such things.
Abha Mondal says
How can someone keep calm after loosing his daughter. Loved your writing style.
Thanks. Glad u loved it. He wasn’t calm to, he took out all the rapists, one by one.
Glad u liked it.
