What those men did to #Priyanka_Reddy is another dark reminder of how unsafe we’ve allowed our society to become by not delivering swift and telling justice in these cases..!
Heart goes out to her family in their hours of unimaginable grief.

Men rape women. Other men get online and threaten to rape women for not making enough noise about the rape. What do you want losers? It’s not a communal issue, it’s a gender issue. If you want to make a change, start with yourself. We are raising sons wrong in this country.
