On Tuesday, Calocane’s pleas of manslaughter, grounded on diminished responsibility, were acknowledged by the court.

During the altercation, Ms. O’Malley-Kumar engaged in a struggle with Calocane before he turned the violence towards her.

In court, Dr. Sanjoy Kumar, addressing Calocane, expressed admiration for his daughter’s heroic actions and criticized the assailant’s callous behavior. Dr. Kumar stated, “She bravely intervened. She would never leave a friend in adversity. It was not in her nature. She heroically and valiantly fought you. Like a hero, she put herself in harm’s way.”

Regrettably, due to the presence of a weapon wielded by Calocane, Ms. O’Malley-Kumar stood little chance in the confrontation.

Dr. Kumar went on to condemn Calocane, describing him as a “cold, cowardly, and calculating killer” who callously walked away, leaving the young victim lying in the street.
