20-year-old gang-raped by 18-20 men in Jharkhand
DUMKA: A 20-year-old tribal woman was allegedly gang-raped by 18 to 20 youths aged between 18 and 22 years near a university campus at Dighi, 8km from Dumka, in Jharkhand, on Wednesday. Dumka SP Mayur Patel said: "Six suspects have been detained."
Police said on Thursday the survivor was returning home on a motorcycle with her boyfriend, not a tribal, from the university campus when they were intercepted by six youths on an abandoned stretch of road around 6:30pm. They allegedly first thrashed the boy for having a relationship with a tribal girl, and asked him to shell out Rs 5,000 as "fine" or hand over his cellphone, police sources said. The group then called some more youths to join them.
Quoting the boyfriend's statement, the sources said the group forced the couple to strip and then held the boyfriend at knifepoint and made him rape her. They then took turns to rape her in a field. "They then forced her to bathe in a pond to destroy any evidence," he has reportedly said.

Your comment is terrible! Rape is terrible but don''t think this happens in Just India! India has a population of 1.2B people thats all of Europe, Russia, Mexco, US, Canada and a few more countries combined! India has a lower Rape ratio the Western Europe and the US! That said we all must work harder to fight such EVIL!

Can we have mandatory army recruitment for unemployed men from the north? For the following reasons:
1) get them away from civilization and society
2) high testosterone levels will be channeled to safeguard the borders
3) over time when they can control their urges, slowlyreintroduce them to society

Rape has become so common, India is characterized by foreigners as the land of rapists. This has something to do with the general mindset. It has become a social problem. Punishing the culprit alone will not help, like is done in Saudi Arabia. Something more needs to be done.
