Lover Injects woman with HIV+ blood:India
It is a perfect example of "Love is Blind " tag.In this incident a married man falls i n love with his sister in law, on refusal of proposal he opts to inject HIV+ blood. What should be the punishment, Hammurabian law of teeth for teeth or long process of judicial interpretation?
In two identical but bizarre cases of sadistic violence in the past week, two women in Guntur were injected with HIV-infected blood when
they rejected the overtures of men, leaving cops worried whether this is the latest ‘method’ of settling scores by spurned and mentally twisted lovers.
While medical practitioners said such victims could be saved if they are rushed to hospital within two hours of being injected, neither woman received timely medical attention.
In both the incidents, the accused happen to be closely related to the victims. According to the police, Deva Prabhakar of Guntur town took the help of an HIV patient to inject the infected blood into his sister-in-law when she refused to marry him. Prabhakar, who was married to the elder sister of the victim six years ago, had an affair with her, which the latter decided to end following a warning by her parents.
When he insisted on marriage, she lodged a police complaint. The cops threw him behind bars. After he came out of jail, he decided on revenge, and he did so by injecting her with HIV-positive blood on December 31. The police, instead of rushing the girl for medical attention, took more than four hours to register the FIR.
According to doctors, chances of declaring the girl HIV-free have reduced. "It’s 100% possible to prevent the virus from spreading to other organs if a victim comes to the hospital within two hours of the infusion of toxic blood. Since they took more than five to six hours, it’s now a 50-50 case," said D Phanibhushan, superintendent of GGH. The girl was given two shots which would stop the multiplication of the virus, sources said.
Prabhakar later tried to commit suicide by consuming pesticide.
In another case, Choudhary Chinna of Piduguralla injected HIV-infected blood into his wife’s body after she refused to live with him. The blood samples of victims have been sent for polymer chain reaction (PCR) test, and the results are expected in three days.
