We all remember the Delhi gangrape case wherein a student was gangraped and brutally assaulted in a moving bus in the national capital on December 16, 2012. Reports of how the braveheart and her friend were deserted on the road after the assault, and how no one stopped to help them made headlines and captured the primetime on television news channels.

There were strong protests and candlelight marches by hundreds of people in the national capital and other parts of the country. The incident and the protests that followed even compelled the government to come up with harsher anti-rape law. But did it bring any change in the society?

An actor carried out a social experiment, where he appeared as an injured person soaked in blood. In the video, the actor shouts out for help from passersby, but no vehicle or person stops to help him. While some slow down their cars to look at him, others just stand as mute spectators. Interestingly, even an ambulance doesn’t stop to carry him to a hospital, which is at a distance of less than one km from the site of the experiment.
