    Oh God, here we go again. Hoping the child comes out of this, physically and mentally stronger. As for the rapist (if he/they are caught and convicted), the first thing should be to bring in own daughter, wife, sister and ask him: - "How would you justify what you did, with them? Would it be OK for them to suffer the same fate?"In so far as the blame game, looks like it has already started (police, politicians, chief minister, party, etc.); but a large portion of the blame also lies with us citizens; do what degree do we teach, guide and mentor our own sons?
