To Chief Justice of India, Supreme Court of India, New Delhi, India.

I have read this incident in BBC News and in several Indian websites. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/8429378.stm informs about the entire incident how the teenager was molested and committed suicide due to police harassment.

This video shows the interview with victim's father http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N22CpgJaeSs

Hon'ble Mr. Justice K.G. Balakrishnan
Chief Justice of India
Supreme Court of India
New Delhi, India.

Dear Sir:

This is an international petition to serve Justice in the case of victim 14 year old girl Ruchika Girhotra who was molested and forced to commit suicide by Indian Police in 1990. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVML-L-ANzA

This is to bring to your attention in which a Fourteen-year-old aspiring female tennis star Ruchika Girhotra was molested Aug 12, 1990 by Haryana Police S.P.S. Rathore. Ruchika Girhotra complained in 1990 that she was assaulted by SPS Rathore. But Mr. Rathore successfully used his influence to harass the Ruchika Girhotra’s brother and father. Unable to cope with harassment imposed on her and her family, Ruchika committed suicide by consuming poison.

Shockingly, Police Inspector S.P.S. Rathore rose to become Haryana's police chief. After repeated complaints, Indian Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) special court convicted Rathore in the molestation case and sentenced Rathore to just six months' imprisonment and imposed a fine of Rs.1,000 ($25). Rathore was immediately granted bail by the court. Television footage shows a laughing and unrepentant Mr. Rathore following the court order. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N22CpgJaeSs

This is a total abuse of power by Haryana Police Department along with some Politicians of the State. As the victims Ruchika's father Subhas Chander Girhotra said "This six-month punishment is not enough, it has hurt us, what kind of justice is this? We want exemplary punishment for him so that Indian children can be safe in future. My daughter is dead, but at least no other girl should meet the same fate,"

The delay of 19 years by the judiciary is outrageous. We request you to take immediate action and put this bad Police Chief S.P.S Rathore behind bars for the rest of his life.
