‘You cannot silence us’: India demands justice in Kathua, Unnao rape cases

Massive protests were organised across India recently demanding justice for the victims of Kathua and Unnao rape cases. While chilling details of the chargesheet in the Kathua rape case shook the nation, people were angry with Uttar Pradesh's government's inaction against the accused BJP MLA in Unnao rape case. He was later arrested by the CBI after the case was transferred to it.
