    I applude her move…when you want justice you have to go to exterems…today her persistence paid and she will probably end up getting justice all because she had the guts to take on the police and force them to act on her case.

    Why blame her , people to blame are the police officers who didnt act on her complaints, human rights should rip thiose officers uniform and through them ouyt of the force.

    Its shameful that in a country like india where women is supposedly given a high place in society a women had to stip to get her griviences heard.
