Just when people were starting to revive from the shock of the Asifa rape case, another brutal happening is thrown at us. A two and a half years old girl, Twinkle Sharma of Tappal town (near Aligarh) in Uttar Pradesh was found near her house –mutilated, acid thrown on her body, and eyes gouged out.
The two accused, Zahid and Aslam, are arrested and have reportedly admitted to the crime (read: sin) committed by them. Police suspect that Twinkle Sharma was kidnapped on May 31 from her house due to personal enmity; apparently her parents had failed to repay a loan of Rs 10,000 to the accused. She was found on 2nd June, two days after the kidnapping, thrown in a dumping ground in her house. What kind of a demon have you got to be to able to do something like this, we will never know.
Many have come out in her support on twitter, and we can only hope it makes a difference.
Aligarh: Body of the girl was found on June 2 and not on May 2 as reported earlier. https://t.co/Gnm0hvs1vu— ANI UP (@ANINewsUP) June 6, 2019

#TwinkleSharma Firstly, we humans need to hang our heads in shame. Disgusting, Pathetic and heartbreaking. The least that's expected now is to ensure justice. Get the culprits eliminated. Swift action is the need of the hour!— Dr.Kiran.K (@DRKKIRAN) June 6, 2019
After choking Twinkle to death with a dupatta, Zahid hid her body in a straw bag in his house. The bag in a pile of trash after three days, when the body began emitting a foul smell.. I am numb after reading this report. This is just heart breaking. #TwinkleSharma— Aadit Kapadia આદિત કાપડિયા (@ask0704) June 6, 2019
We should stop declaring the religion after a rapist's name every time such unfortunate incident happens. Be it a Hindu-Rapist/Muslim-Victim or vice versa incident. A #Rape is a Rape not a #conspiracy. Don't make it your weapon to demonize a religion. #TwinkleSharma— Rupesh mishra (@rupesh88) June 6, 2019
That we live in a country where even toddlers aren't safe, fills me with horror. That #TwinkleSharma had a her life snatched away in this cruel, barbaric manner, makes me feel capital punishment is not enough for the sick, depraved culprit who did this to her.— Gul Panag (@GulPanag) June 6, 2019
I am a father of 3 year old daughter and I am feeling the pain of #TwinkleSharma parents. And I am scared too— H.R. Sharma (@panditrockss) June 6, 2019
Why do we constantly keep failing ourselves when it comes to the female gender?— Divya Rai (@raidivya27) June 6, 2019
Can a prompt action be expected, and can UP give it's women at least the same status it reserves for its cows? #TwinkleSharma
The victim’s father has demanded that other family members of the accused also be arrested as it could not have been done without their knowledge. He has threatened to start a fast unto death from tomorrow if no further arrests were made. I cannot even begin to imagine the trauma, the pain, and the heartbreak that the parents of this innocent girl are going through.
Humans have become a bigger threat for our race than anything else. There are no words that can describe this inhuman, barbaric, and heinous deed.
