New Delhi: Even as nationwide protests are held over the horrific assault and gangrape of a 23-year-old physiotherapist in Delhi, a 19-year-old Dalit student from Alwar has alleged that she was sexually assaulted by upper caste men for trying to attend college. She struggled for a month to get an FIR registered and is still waiting for justice after a year.
Speaking to CNN-IBN, the girl said, "Such men should be hanged. They should be punished severely so that such things are never repeated."
"The boys used to tease me and then one day they abducted me. I was told if I told anyone anything they'd do the same thing to me that they did to Bhanwari Devi and my body would never be found. The incident occurred a year ago. I have met all the authorities but I still haven't got justice," she added.
