On the 14th of September, 2020, a 19-year-old Dalit lady from the metropolis of Hathras in Uttar Pradesh, used to be brutally gang-raped by four upper-caste men. They also gouged out her eyes, reduce off her tongue, and broke her spinal wire due to the fact of which she suffered a couple of fractures and extreme bleeding. On the 29th of September, she succumbed to her accidents and grew to be simply some other statistic in India — a u . s . a . in which a lady is raped every 15 minutes.
While all four accused had been arrested, the Uttar Pradesh police refused to hand over the woman’s mortal stays to her household and forcefully cremated her in the early hours of the 30th of September. The horrendous incident (rightly) sparked outrage amongst Indians with many protesting the movements of the police and demanding an end to our country’s commonplace rape culture.
