Chennai’s professional community on Sunday organized a candle light vigil to condemn the murder of Swathi and expressed solidarity with all working women in Chennai at Nungambakkam Railway station.

They raised concern for the reputation of the victim and also called for increased sensitivity among public so that such incidents do not happen in the future.

"A young woman was killed in broad daylight with none coming to her rescue brings shame to this city. I didn't know her personally but now a fear that this could happen to me or someone else has crept in," said Bharathi, Infosys employee who boards the same train everyday, reported by Times of India.

Seetharaman K, the organizer of the event told TOI that they are not there to make speeches and then go back about their lives. They will continue to mount pressure and campaign on social media till the criminal is arrested.

Residents, IT employees, social activists and commuters, all came together to show their solidarity.
