The Shakti Mills gang rape incident had shook the entire nation in August 2013
For quite sometime now, Crime Patrol has been airing stories inspired by real happenings. This time around, host Anup Soni is planning to throw some light on the Shakti Mills gang rape that shook Mumbai in August 2013. During broad daylight, a young photojournalist along with her colleague were out an assignment. The colleague was assaulted and then the young photojournalist was raped by five men. The girl decided to stand up again all odds and with support from her family and friends, the girl reported the incident and the rapists were caught. Within eight months, the court awarded death sentences to three of her attackers and life term for the fourth convict.
While talking to a leading daily, Anup Soni said, “We have been always known as pioneers in depicting the brutal cases in the society. It is important to throw light on such critical and heinous issues with the aim of coming together to bring about a change in our society and rectifying the loopholes. The purpose is not to get into details of the case but to identify and change the limitations that exist in our society. It is talking about remedies, cures and precautions without exaggerating the rape case.”
A little more than a year ago, Crime Patrol was all set to telecast the Delhi gang rape case but unfortunately on the telecast day, an advisory from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting said that the dramatic reconstruction of the unfortunate incident should not be telecast on any channel. Well, we just hope that this time around, the same thing does not happen at the last moment.
