Speaking addressing the protestors he said, so far we have heard about rape cases in Delhi and later in Bengaluru, but now we happen to hear such news which has taken place in our own neighbourhood. We have to build an educated society. This candlelight march is to create awareness among citizens against such atrocities and urge for justice to the child.\

Renny D’Souza, state convener of CLC Karnataka addressing the gathered near DC’s office, said, so far no action has been initiated against the school and hence we are holding this march. POCSO Act has to be implemented in the right manner, and the culprit should be brought under the law. We should educate children about their safety.
