Delhi Rape Victim – Crowd Cheering for Her to be Raped, Even Women

Delhi Rape Victim – In a Delhi neighborhood, a woman’s face is painted black before she was paraded on the streets. The crowd cheered and called for her to be raped. The crowd included women. The video shared on social media shocked many.

Last January 26, a 20-year-old victim was abducted, physically, and sexually abused. Delhi police arrested 12 suspects and 8 of them are women. There are no current charges regarding the incident.

Chairperson of the Delhi Commission of Women Swati Maliwal said that the woman told her she was raped by three men. “There were women present (in the room) …instigating the men to be more brutal with her,” she added. “When I saw that video and I saw these women attacking this girl…it just makes you feel so angry and sad that you have such women who can do something like that.”

The victim’s 18-year-old sister watched the scene unfold in horror. “I was thinking of shouting, of telling someone, but the (accused) women grabbed me, saying they would beat me up,” she said.

Her sister delivered a bag of wheat to her house on the morning of January 26. Her sister came down to collect it when an angry mod rushed towards them. “They started hitting and beating my sister. This was happening in front of me, but I just stood there, I didn’t know what to do…I was frozen with fear,” she said. The group tried to snatch her sister’s two-and-a-half-year-old son, but she “somehow fought them off” and held onto him as the group bundled her sister in an autorickshaw.

The rickshaw stopped at the alleged perpetrators’ house, but she couldn’t see her sister, she went inside her own home and latched the door. Soon after, she heard the commotion outside, and from behind a wall watched her sister being led through the street as women hit her with rods.

Her hair had been cut off, her face blackened, and she had a garland of slippers around her neck — all actions meant to mark her as perhaps deserving of public shame.

R Sathiyasundaram, the deputy police commissioner of Shahdara district, said the investigation is still underway and would not say which laws the alleged perpetrators had been arrested under.
