New Delhi, Sep 29: It has been eight years since the Nirbhaya incident that shook the country with its gruesome cruelty, where the 23-year-old survivor died after she was gang-raped by six men, and tortured in a private bus in which she was travelling with her friend.

As soon as the news broke out, netizens make #Nirbhaya trending with asking questions to govts, expressing mourn for the woman, while some expressed their rage as the incidents of rape never stopped.
Giving details of the incident, Hathras SP said that the woman had gone to the fields with her mother on that fateful day and had gone missing soon after.
She was later found brutally injured, with her tongue having a serious cut as she bit it while the accused attempted to strangulate her, he said.
