The Masaipet school bus accident is brutal, and happened due to criminal negligence on somebody’s part. This should not be left like the other similar incidents in the past. Public memory is short lived and media doesn’t seem to care after a month. They always have more important news to talk about. Every body got used to how these brutal incidents are handled including the parents of the deceased. This incident needs to be investigated with a retired supreme court judge not with railway police or local police.
If the justice is not served in our own country, there is nothing wrong to take it to the international streets. This is like cancer- if you don’t find a specialist in our own country to treat you should find someone in Singapore, USA or anywhere on the earth.
The routine sympathy and few lakhs of rupees as compensation is not justifiable. My blood boiled, tears in my eyes when I watched the discussion about this in the Loksabha, they are arguing about 2 lakhs vs 5 lakhs compensation, not the children in blood bath, weeping mothers. The punishment should fit the crime. At least 2 crore rupees/child need to be paid. I understand this is huge amount but the penalties should scare this kind of negligence by school management, railways or any government.
If the central government doesn’t take action on this, We will take it to the notice of international agencies.
