In yet another shocking and appalling incident, a 15 year old cancer patient was gang-raped by two men in UP and was then taken advantage of, by another passerby who she sought help from.

The chilling incident took place this past Saturday in Lucknow, when the victim - a 15 year old blood cancer survivor, ventured out to meet an acquaintance at around 9 PM. The accused then took her to a deserted area, where he along with his friend raped her.

Things only turned worse, when a commuter who the girl attempted to seek help from, also committed rape on her.

So far the police have managed to arrest the passerby, identified as Virendra Yadav while the other two accused are absconding.

The other two accused, identified as Shubham and Sumit, belong from the same locality as the girl.

The crimes against women are consistently getting more brutal in nature. With a new incident coming to light everyday, from various parts of the country, sexual offenders do not seem to have any fear of the law anymore.

What would it take for the system and the society to wake up against such atrocities?
