Indian police blame Swiss victim for rape
INDIAN police have arrested six men for the alleged gang rape of a Swiss tourist in Madhya Pradesh. The woman and her husband were cycling around India. They had camped for the night in Datia.
A Madhya Pradesh policeman Inspector Avnesh Kumar Budholiya said:
“No one stops there. Why did they choose that place? They were in the wrong place at the wrong time. They would have passed a police station on the way to the area they camped. They should have stopped and asked about places to sleep.”
Blame the victim. Classy.
But the Indian policeman is no different to the British media, which vilified the mother of a British teenager raped and killed in India.
In this March 16, 2013 file photo, a Swiss woman, center, who, according to police, was gang-raped by a group of eight men while touring by bicycle with her husband, is escorted by policewomen for a medical examination at a hospital in Gwalior.
