  • The victim’s father says, “When his body was found, the condition was such that it was not even seen, he was burnt with acid, seemed to have been raped but the medical report does not mention rape.”
  • He says, “The lawsuit did not reach the court for the first five months, then started saying that Corona is happening, we were told that we will get justice in six months, it has been a year and a half, nothing has happened yet”

After the death of the first son at the time of birth, Shilpa prayed for Aulad. Five years later, when the girl was born, she was named Twinkle. The twinkle that shone like a star. Used to run from this corner of the house to that corner. It would have been difficult to keep him in one place. At the age of two and a half, she used to talk like a five-year-old child.

When she ran and hugged Dad, uncle, and grandfather, all the tiredness would go away. When he was worried about the world, he would ask such innocent questions in his sweet tongue that he would forget everything and start answering the same.

He had just started going to school. The mother would leave him for school, hold his hand, and live his childhood. She would have seen dreams of going to college and doing jobs, which she had seen in childhood but could not be fulfilled. She herself could not read much but wanted to give Twinkle the best education in the world. When Twinkle ran to school, the mother thought that she would definitely become something.

Twinkle had learned to hold a pen. The pen was started to move on the letters. As far as her hands go on the walls of the house, she would do the artwork. Mother would like to be scolded, but instead of being scolded, she would laugh at herself. The presence of this two-and-a-half-year-old innocent made the house a paradise. The mother would not allow him to lose sight. Twinkle had become the whole world of her family.

Then a wretched day made this greatest happiness of the family the greatest grief.

The two-and-a-half-year-old was murdered by gangsters after being raped in May 2019 in Tappal town of Aligarh district, about 90 km from Delhi.

The two-and-a-half-year-old was murdered by gangsters after being raped in May 2019 in the Tappal town of Aligarh district, about 90 km from Delhi.

It was the day of 30 May 2019. Twinkle was playing outside the house, where she used to play daily. The mother was engaged in petty work. After a while I saw Twinkle, she was not there. A snake took away the only flower of this house.

Shilpa Sharma does not know who took her away. Three days later, on June 2, Twinkle’s body was found in a ruined house near the house. Rotten street Several body parts were missing. It looked as if he had been thrown out of favor. Those who saw her corpse say that she was probably bitten by dogs.

This tragedy with the daughter broke the family. As the news of the rape and murder of a two-and-a-half-year-old innocent in Tappal town of Aligarh district, about 90 km from Delhi, people became angry. Whoever listened was shocked. To give justice to Twinkle, rallies were held, demonstrations were held, candles were lit.

TV cameras reached Twinkle’s house. The country saw her weeping mother. Whoever saw this family joined their sorrow. Anger was increasing among the people. The government was understanding this anger. The suspects involved in the incident were immediately arrested. The family was promised justice within six months. The barrage of government promises calmed the family’s anger.

I remember when I went to Twinkle’s house her mother Shilpa Sharma was unconscious. His eyes had turned red with tears, his face had dried up. They showed me his small sandals. Books were shown, toys saved. Those pencils were seen which had to hold Twinkle’s little hands. Seeing that innocent twinkle, it was hard to believe that one could even beg a child like this flower.

There were demonstrations across the country to protest against this incident, people burnt candles and demanded justice.

Recently when I reached Twinkle’s house, I was distributing the prasad of the opening of a new shop here. Twinkle’s uncle Kapil said, “Bhaiyya used to be very upset for the last one and a half years. Could not get out of that depression. This small shop has been opened so that their mind can be used and they can come out of that misery. ‘

Family members were trying to laugh, but Shilpa Sharma kept the same sadness. His face was more blank than before. Now his attitude has become sharp towards the government and the judicial system.

Actually, in the post-mortem report, the case of the murder of Twinkle has just arrived in the court due to the non-confirmation of rape. The family was assured that the trial would take place in the Fasttrack court, but this could not happen. Rather after one and a half years, the statements of witnesses, in this case, have not been made yet. In this case, three accused named Zahid, Mehndi Hasan, and Aslam are in jail. A woman named Shagufta is out on bail.

Shilpa says, ‘My blood starts boiling every time I go towards that street. He wants to kill that goth with his own hands. I sip after drinking a sip of blood. I have to bear this pain every day. ‘

Date on date

Shilpa Sharma says, “The government leaves justice on the court. The court does nothing. The date goes on date. Sometimes three dates, sometimes four dates. It has been a year and a half since the trial. Every time the date falls then it gets canceled. We are told that there will be a hearing on this day. When we ask again, we are told that the hearing has moved forward. For a year and a half, the date is just falling, the hearing is not going on.

The family has preserved everything related to the innocent even today.

Questioning the delay in the hearing, Shilpa says, ‘We are being told that the delay is due to Corona. There is no delay in Sushant’s case. The court and CBI are all engaged. Then why Corona’s excuse for our daughter only. Why are his poor people not being hanged? Or was Sushant different and our daughter different? Justice should be equal for all?

The victim’s father Banwari Lal Sharma says, “First we were assured to send the case to the High Court and Fast Track Court.” Large streams were assured. The trial did not reach the court for the first five months. Then started saying that Corona is happening. We were told that there will be justice in six months. It has been a year and a half, not a glimpse of justice has been seen.

In this case, the family lawyer says that the charge sheet has been filed and now the statements of witnesses are to be made. The court has given the next date for the statement. The previous date was canceled by this. Advocate Rambabu says that the child’s organs were not found in the post-mortem, on what basis the doctor would report the rape. Now the murder case is going on in the court.

The streets of Tappal where rallies were taken out to get justice for Twinkle are now quiet. Everything is normal here. For the people here, that two and a half-year-old girl has become just a blurred memory.

Demand for justice like Hyderabad
Shilpa Sharma says, ‘I have had the best Hyderabad scandal. Killed all four there. Now this kind of scandal will never happen again in Hyderabad. Everyday news of rape is coming in UP. Whatever has happened in Hyderabad, will happen in UP, then such news will stop coming. If the government bus is not to be judged, then leave the culprits in the public. The public will manage everything on its own.

Shilpa Sharma has kept the newspapers in which Twinkle related news was published. However, their pages turn and their hands begin to tremble. They have saved everything associated with Twinkle. I want to talk more about him but Kapil stops me. He says, ‘Today is a happy day at home. His memory will make the whole family cry. He used to say that he had tears in his eyes. She still has a picture of her daughter on her WhatsApp status and reads, ‘I miss my angel.’
