Richa Chaddha too extended condolences to the victim’s family writing on how those “perpetrators” deceived the late vet by promising to “fix her scooty”. “Her only crime was she trusted these men who promised to fix her scooty. Perpetrators are given the harshest punishment, they don’t belong in society. They won her trust and then brutalised her. Treated her like a thing, not a human being. Condolences to the family,” she tweeted.

“The horror! The brutality! Perpetrators must be brought to book. I grieve for her family and for what is happening to some elements in our society,” tweeted Shabana Azmi.
