        If one goes by the reports of all rapes taking place in India one will start thinking that it is mostly the Dalit girls who are the victims. Why the rapists always prefer the Dalits?

          What do you think? Will four CCTV cameras will do to establish the rape? Or will it have to be proved that the CCTV cameras are males and not females? And if it is to be done how it can be done?
