Four-year-old Raped and Killed: Did her Clothes Matter?
Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, Nov 23, 2012
Though the brutal gang rape and murder of a young medical student in Delhi has spurred a movement of anger and outrage against the government and police in Delhi (click here), rape and femicide (the killing of girls and women) are the fastest growing crimes in India.
One of the questions we have to ask is : How does Indian society view this crime? Very often rape victims are blamed by the government and police for the crime. They question how the victim dressed, or claim they behaved “immorally” Does dress and “immoral” behavior get little girls raped and killed too?
A 4-year-old girl in the Majra village of Meerut district, was brutally raped and strangled to death while on her way to school. The rapist has yet to be identified. Full report here
