Many other people who belong to the Tamil speaking state felt ashamed of the incident, hoping to get justice immediately. Few even requesting Tamilnadu government to follow Hyderabad police in this case as they have killed the culprits in 26 year old Priyanka rape and murder case. Cricketer Subramaniam Badrinath is one among them. He wanted to instill fear in the state by providing capital punishment as the answer.
