Wrong image of Hathras rape victim goes viral on social media

My heart breaks just thinking about what this beautiful innocent girl must have endured (gang raped, tongue cut off, neck and spinal cord broken). No one should face such torture. Enough is enough. Things need to change, read a message on social media.

"A 19-year-old girl was brutally gang-raped like Nirbhaya in UP Hathras by 4 Rapists. Her tongue was cut off. Her spinal cord and neck were damaged. Please, hangout all rapists," wrote another user while sharing the same picture.

First and foremost there is no confirmation that the image being shared is that of the victims. Secondly, the family of the girl has denied that the images being shared is that of the victim's. Most importantly it is wrong to share the images of a rape victim. The courts have clearly said that the images of a rape victim cannot be shared. Do call out these persons who share images of rape victims as it is insensitive and very painful to the family members.
