Woman Who Accused Rajasthan Minister’s Son Of Rape Is Scared For Her And Her Family’s Life
More often than not we hear society blaming the women for not coming out and reporting violent and abusive crimes committed against them. And for the most part, I would agree that women should not suffer silently and should help in putting the culprits behind bars but then I’m also aware of what happens to these women when they report crimes – they’re shunned by the society or they’re blackmailed/threatened to keep quiet or sometimes even killed. Don’t believe me? Take the instance of this woman who accused the Rajasthan Minister’s son of rape and has now come out and said that she and her family’s life is under threat.
Yes, a 23-year-old woman, who used to work as an anchor on a news channel, had allegedly claimed that she was taken to Sawai Madhopur where she was given a drink laced with drugs and then was raped on numerous occasions by Rajasthan Minister Mahesh Joshi’s son, Rohit Joshi.
