Girl stands up to elders, refuses to marry ‘rapist’

"Rape survivors are generally encouraged by community elders (as well as police) to compromise with the family of the accused by dropping charges or marrying the accused. But, in this particular case the rape survivor refused and sent her 'would be husband' behind the bars. The girl has set an example for others," said human rights activist Lenin Raghuvanshi of People's Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR).
