I am writing to express my shock and anguish at your judgement in the Pallavi Purkayastha murder case. I recently read an article by Pallavi's father in which he noted that while you thought that her being stabbed 16 times was cruel, it was not cruel enough to award the death penalty. Your judgement also said, "when the accused saw Pallavi in scanty clothes, he was sexually excited... therefore aggravating fact of pre-planning is not there.” Thus, you’re suggesting that the clothes Pallavi was wearing somehow provoked her murderer.

For me, a ritual like this is downright misogynistic and I decided to share my concerns with the people around me.
