In case you didn’t know..
The crime, which took place in Visakhapatnam on Sunday, left everyone with utter disbelief. An alcoholic man forced himself onto a destitute woman who was taking shade under a tree on one of the busier roads in the city. What was equally appalling was the fact that no passer-by took it upon him/herself to step forward and stop the man from committing the rape. The incident has set ablaze a wide scale uproar all over the nation with everyone questioning the people’s inhumanity.
Reacting to this incident, Cabinet Minister Maneka Gandhi lashed out at the people who did nothing. She criticised the fact that people felt it was better to record the video instead of trying and helping the victim.
Speaking to the PTI over the phone, she said, “Everybody here is culpable…the people who were thrill seekers preferring to let a woman suffer rather than help her. I am totally outraged by their behaviour…by the behaviour of the man who raped her and by the people who by doing nothing helped it happen.”
