A teenaged girl was allegedly raped by a powerful politician in Unnao in Uttar Pradesh. When she tried to report the crime, his stooges took turns raping her over and over in a bid to keep her quite. When the police refused to help her, she went to court. The rapist and his men, then allegedly brutalised her father, had him incarcerated and he died in custody! But even that did not deter the young woman from seeking justice. Here is the story of the Unnao rape survivor, a girl fighting a lonely battle for justice.
