Unnao, Kathua and Surat rape cases: Anand Mahindra offers to be the executioner


MUMBAI: Industrialists seldom speak up on mundane matters of social consciousness.  Anand Mahindra, too, is known to keep his calm reserve on the social media. But the body of a 9-year-old – bearing 80 wounds – who was raped and murdered in Gujarat, constrained him to cast aside his calm demeanour and comment on Twitter: ‘‘The job of executioner is not an aspirational job. But for the execution of brutal rapists & murderers of young girls I would volunteer unhesitatingly. I work hard to stay calm, but my blood boils over to see this happen in our country.” Many responded that he was in the queue.
