This video is believed to be filmed in India, in it, you will see a man tied up and surrounded while three women use sticks to beat him. This man is an alleged rapist and according to several, it seems he raped a young girl and killed her leaving her body among the trees by the bank of their local river. According to India Today, this was reported on in a newspaper called ‘Prabhat Khabar’ and that the girl mentioned was merely eight years old at the time of her death. The video will be below if you are not interested in watching please scroll past for more information.
India Today reported as follows on the events leading up to the death of this young girl and then the beating of the man behind her death:
“The girl had come to Jalwe village in Dumka district for a wedding. She along with a few others girls from the wedding party went to a nearby lake to take a bath where Hansda, in a drunken state, misbehaved with them, Prabhat Khabar reported.
While a few girls managed to run away, Hansda abducted the eight-year-old, took her to the bank of a river outside Jalwe village and allegedly raped her. He is then reported to have killed her and thrown her body among the trees on the river bank.
According to Prabhat Khabar, the Hansda went back to the village and joined the wedding party. However, after the eight-year-old did not return, her family started searching for him.
In the meantime, the girls who were at the lake where Hansda had misbehaved with them revealed what had happened. Villagers then accosted Hansda who denied that he raped the girl.
On Wednesday, villagers again accosted Hansda, tied him to a tree and beat him mercilessly, Prabhat Khabar reported. Hansda reportedly confessed to raping and killing the eight-year-old and then died due to the beating.
News agency ANI today reported that the bodies of both Hansda and the eight-year-old girl who was raped were recovered by police and have been sent for post-mortem.”
This is a very important topic to cover and that is why we are bringing it up now. Rape is a huge problem in India. Bodies have been found on far too many occasions, rape is literally the fourth most common crime against women in India and it is thriving. Back in 2016, an Indian woman was raped in a hospital just hours after giving birth through C-section. Just days later a girl who was only 15 years old was raped and set on fire.
There are tons and tons of stories like this and most of the females being taken advantage of never see justice. These rapes are becoming more and more violent and brutal and something needs to be done. Sure, small changes are happening, but they are not enough.
Take a look at the videos below to learn more about this pressing issue. According to CNN, most sexual assault-related cases never get resolved, these women are left without justice and the system is failing them. Who is going to protect these girls?
