What is the first thing that comes to your mind when I say the word RAPE?
Injustice! Cruelty! Death Sentence!
These words come to every individual's mind. Doesn't it? Rape is a criminal offense, and everyone believes that the culprit should be given serious punishment. But, have you ever wondered what if the verdict is given and the person who we think as a culprit is actually innocent and wrong allegations have been put on them? There are two sides of a coin, in the same manner, every situation has two perspectives, to be or not to be on a side is our choice. In most cases, the culprits are not given any punishment, and the victim keeps on suffering throughout their life.
