Branded a “#Witch”; #Gangraped and nearly Killed: An Everyday Reality in #India
Pakhanjore, Chattisgarh, Dec 23, 2012
Though the Delhi gang rape aroused India’s fury, the fact is that this is an everyday reality for girls and women all over India. Most of these cases evoke no response or fury in the public. There is no one lobbying for justice for these girls and women.
On Dec 23, a 36-year-old woman, and mother of six children, was gangraped and brutally assaulted by five people, including her brother-in-law and the local sarpanch (head of the village judiciary), in her home in the village of Allora. The men had branded her a “witch” to justify their assault. She’s still battling for her life in the hospital.Full report here.
