In a video that is going viral on social media, a US woman who was sexually assaulted in Delhi in 2013, has spoken against the Indian judiciary for giving bail to a convicted criminal.
All the good hearted people who wish to see India stricken its rape laws. Please support her and retweet @ashoswai @SwatiJaiHind @Amitjanhit @AnkitLal @aartic02 @Shalupcrf @ShaleenMitra pic.twitter.com/bZ2r6NVtmL— Santosh Addagulla (@santoshspeed) August 2, 2019
She talks about the incident when the accused, Rajeev Panwar, nephew of former Delhi Mayor Jayshree Panwar, broke into her apartment and violated her with his finger while she was sleeping with her husband.
She left the country after this incident, but later, came all the way from US to testify in the case.
After 6 years of legal battle, the accused was reportedly sentenced to 7-year imprisonment by a fast-track court in Delhi in February 2019. But recently, he was granted bail.
The woman shot this video in front of the Indian Consulate in San Francisco, after the accused was granted bail. She also questioned the Indian legal system for granting bail to convicted criminals.
People are tweeting in support of the woman, so that she gets justice soon.
Adds further to the global perception that 'India is the most dangerous country for women'.— Ashok Swain (@ashoswai) August 2, 2019
Deeply disturbing to watch. There’s an undeclared advisory in UK for women at least not to travel to India at all— TheAgeOfBananas (@iScrew) August 3, 2019

They come out on bail and rape another one. This is exactly what happened recently. He raped a 3 year old and beheaded her.— TheKnowAbout (@Theknowabout) August 3, 2019
The rapists should be killed. Shame on those who talk about human rights of Rapists and murderers. They are curse to society and should be eliminated.
An American citizen was attacked while she was in India and this is what she has to say about what she is going through. Huge blow to all talks about “women-safety”. pic.twitter.com/eP4byl8FsI— Ram Subramanian (@VORdotcom) August 3, 2019
She has asked for help from fellow Indians so that the accused is put behind bars again.
