Eunuchs too protest Bhumi?s killing

india Updated: Sep 23, 2006 15:07 IST

THE PUBLIC outrage against killers of Bhumi Ramchandani continued to spill onto the streets today. Latest to join in the protests on Friday were a band of eunuchs who thrashed the effigies of Dhanwatari, her husband Jamnadas and son Manoj at the Tower Chouraha before setting them afire.

In the morning, Sindhi Yuva Manch members led by Mahesh Kukreja had gathered at the Tower Chouraha to hang the effigies of the three accused in the Bhumi murder case. While they were in the process of hanging the effigies from a lamppost, a group of eunuchs came by.

They were aware of the case and were enraged with the behaviour of the Ramchandanis. The eunuchs, who live behind Anand Hospital, beat the three effigies with slippers and then set them afire. Large crowds gathered at the Tower Chouraha to see the spectacle of eunuchs beating the effigies.

From what could be gathered, the eunuchs beating the effigy were the same group who had gone to Ramchandani’s house five and half months ago when Bhumi had come home as a newly-wed. They had danced and sang and blessed the young bride. Later, NSUI activists led by Tantu Sharma also burnt effigy of Dhanwantri at the same place.
