Hours after she launched #ShameTheRapistsCampaign, activist Sunitha Krishnan was allegedly attacked by goons in Hyderabad on Friday morning.

Her vehicle was attacked by unidentified men while it was parked in the old city area.

“If goons think they can intimidate me this way...take a long walk boss, I will report come what may, I will track, I will shame and will report,” she tweeted.

 

Meanwhile, in an attempt to identify and nab the gang-rape accused, the woman rights activist Krishnan launched ‘Shame the rapist campaign’.

She has shared videos that feature men sexually assaulting a woman (concealing her identity) and made an appeal to identity the men.

Two separate videos feature six men shamelessly laughing and posing for the camera as they take turns to gang-rape a woman, ignoring her appeals.

The videos which were about six months old were believed to be shot by the men who were assaulting the girl. The videos were being circulated on popular messaging service WhatsApp from where Krishnan discovered it and devised it to catch the rapists.

"Ten seconds into the video, I was overcome. I had to stop as I needed to throw up," she told NDTV.

She said as an acquaintance alerted her to the videos after receiving them on WhatsApp following which she uploaded the video on YouTube and launched the campaign. The identity of the girl in the video is blurred out completely, while the face of the men is clearly visible so that viewers can help trace them.

Krishnan, who is herself a rape survivor, heads an NGO Prajwala, an anti-trafficking organisation based out of Hyderabad. She has also shared her edited videos with NDTV as she launched the campaign.
