A pretty teenaged Indian girl, 17-years old, in the capital city of India, New Delhi, during the festival of Diwali, November 13, 2012, got on a public bus and found herself seized by two men helped by one woman, on the bus, kidnapped, taken to a tubewell in the village of Brahamanmajra, forced to take drugs which prevented her from defending herself, and, while conscious, stripped of her clothes and repeatedly raped by the two men, who then abandoned her in the dark of night, naked. She suffered internal injuries to her private parts, and spent a time in a hospital, after which, on November 27, 2012, she went to the police station and tried to report the rapists. The policemen harrassed the girl, asked her embarrassing questions, asked her to narrate all the details of the event over and over, took no action against the rapists, and told her she should settle the case for a sum of money from the rapists, or marry one of the men, who had a job as an auto rickshaw driver. The police men told the rapists that she was trying to report the crimes, and they began to threaten her and her family. December 26, 2012, in the afternoon, she left a suicide note naming the rapists one more time, took too much poison, and was found dead at 5pm. The girl's sister and her husband escalated the case to higher police officials, who then suspended, that means ordered to take a few days off, the policemen involved, and notified superiors. The capital city was tied up with protests by women, who were sprayed with water by fire hoses and tear gassed by the police, and the son of the President of India, Abhijit Mukherjee, answered the protestors that they were "highly-dented and painted women who go from discos to demonstrations," and used fire hoses and tear gas to discourage them. Later, his Father forced him to apologize to the public "for anyone whose feelings were hurt" by what he said. On December 27, 2012, the police detained two men and one woman for questioning. The Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh, pledged to his Ministers that he would try to get new laws passed to cover attacks on women in India, but didn't mention that there are already plenty of laws against such cruel treatment of women. In the last year, in all of the nation of India, there were 256,329 violent crimes reported, and of those, 228,650 were against women in India. Those were the cases that the police in India have opened, after being reported by hurt Indian women. It is well-known that few cruel crimes to women are ever reported to the police in India. The civilization in India was one of the first to develop in human history, following that of the Chinese, and has for a long time had a caste-system of families doing different jobs needed for the civilization. Those cleaning toilets were called Untouchables and were at the bottom of the system. Politicians were much higher, soldiers above them, and religious leaders at the very top, gave orders to everyone else. Women of one caste have never been allowed to marry a man outside of their family caste, especially not one of a lower caste. This is called the Hindu religion. It has produced some amazing genetic talents of some of the family castes, but has always failed to allow "social mobility" which is the ability of a person to advance to a higher position in life by study, practice, and hard work. This problem has discouraged the Indian people for many centuries, but is insisted on by the religious leaders, who want to conserve the ancient Hindu values. India is, today, the world's largest democracy, and is a nuclear power assisted by the USA.
