The incident took place in November 2012 and police arrested five people in connection with the case. But four of them were released including the 64-year-old landlord of the rape survivor.
Posing as social workers, CNN-IBN reporters met the local District Superintendent for his view on the case; a view loaded in favour of the 64 year-old landlord. Even the DSP accepts that the landlord was in the house, drinking liquor, when the rape happened.
DSP: We should not lie. I don't do wrong work. Accusing someone is not a minor thing, remember the Lord.
Rape Survivor: He threatened me not to tell anyone at home. Said the he would kill my parents.
DSP: He did not rape her. Even we agree that the old man had drinks sitting there.
The 17-year-old girl fought for her life in a government hospital for 11 days but only to face a bigoted police system that is insensitive to her trauma.
