Ghaziabad, Jan 24: Rape of minor girls, some as young as 5-6 years old is not just a crime, it, in fact, reflects a serious problem in the society which is not visible to the plain eyes. These perverts who commit such heinous offences are one among us and that ought to be enough to make everyone hang their head shame.
