We have another horrific gang rape committed overseas by men who claim to be teaching a woman good morals. The physiotherapy student was attacked on a city bus in Delhi after watching a movie with a male friend. Six drunk men got on the bus and reportedly attacked the woman for being out at night with a man and decided to “teach her a lesson” by beating them both and repeatedly raping the woman. The rape and beating was so severe that the woman is on a ventilator and her intestines were so severely ruptured that doctors had to remove them to prevent gangrene.
What is bizarre is that the city bus continued to drive around the city during the attack. It is not clear what the driver was doing as the men took turns raping the woman and beating the couple with a pipe and fists.
Citizens have protested the lack of police sympathy and effort in dealing with the high level of rapes in Delhi. Activists have also blamed aspects of the Indian culture of male privilege.
