Guwahati, March 27: The recent murder of a security guard from Assam in Hyderabad has once again brought the issue of rising crime rates in India to the forefront. The victim, identified as 43-year-old Tankeshwar Bora, was allegedly beaten to death by a co-worker at a business in Hyderabad’s Aliabad neighbourhood.
According to reports, the accused, a man from Bihar, attacked Bora with a pipe while he was working his night shift. After killing him, the accused allegedly wrapped his body in a bag and dumped it in water. The police have taken the accused into custody and are investigating the incident.
The murder of Bora is not an isolated incident. In recent years, there has been a sharp rise in crime rates in India, particularly in crimes against women and vulnerable groups. Despite the government’s efforts to improve law and order, incidents of violence and crime continue to occur on a regular basis.
One of the main reasons behind the rise in crime rates is the increasing economic disparity in the country. The gap between the rich and the poor has widened over the years, leading to a rise in cases of robbery, theft, and other crimes. The lack of adequate employment opportunities has also contributed to the problem, as many people turn to crime as a means of survival.
In addition to economic factors, there are also social and cultural issues that contribute to the rise in crime rates. One of the major issues is the prevalence of gender-based violence, which has become a major concern in recent years. Despite the introduction of stringent laws and policies, incidents of sexual assault and domestic violence continue to occur on a regular basis.
The lack of effective law enforcement and justice systems is another major contributing factor. Many cases of crime go unreported, and even when they are reported, the accused often go unpunished due to the slow and ineffective judicial process. This lack of accountability only serves to perpetuate the cycle of crime and violence.
The murder of Bora is a tragic reminder of the need for stronger law and order in India. It is imperative that the government takes proactive measures to address the root causes of crime and violence, including economic disparity, social and cultural issues, and ineffective law enforcement. Only by addressing these issues can India hope to create a safer and more secure society for its citizens.
The murder of Tankeshwar Bora is a tragic reminder of the rising crime rates in India. It is time for the government to take decisive action to address the root causes of crime and violence and to create a more just and equitable society for all. The safety and security of citizens should be the top priority, and it is the responsibility of all stakeholders to work toward achieving this goal.
