The students and teachers at the St Jude School at Karuvatta near Adoor have taken out a peace march in Adoor town on Saturday, demanding justice for the 23-year old paramedical student who lost her life after being gang raped and brutally assaulted in Delhi.

The march led by the school chairman, Varghese Daniel, was flagged of by the school principal, Fr. O. Thomas.

The entire school took part in the march, holding placards carrying the slogans, ‘We want safety’, ‘Stop violence against women’, ‘Give ultimate punishment to the rapists’, ‘We want concrete steps to stop violence’, etc.

The march that began from the municipal corporation junction culminated at the central junction in Adoor town, later.

Addressing the march, Mr Daniel has called for stern measures on the part of the Government to facilitate an atmosphere in which women are safe.

School Vice-Principal Ammukkutty Raju said that Delhi and many other places in the country have become the most unsafe place for women in India for the past few years.

The Indian culture always held womanhood in high esteem and the recent spurt in violence against women was a humiliation to the rich Indian culture, she added.

Paul Antony, Rema Devi, and Lalu Rajan, teachers, also spoke.

They demanded stringent punishment against the culprits involved in the December 16 inhuman act against the deceased paramedical student.
