Protests to Stop Rape

A 21-Year-Old student from IIT-Guwahati was suspended by the IIT authorities for sexually assaulting a fellow female student on March 28, 2021. Following the suspension, he was arrested by the police on April 3, 2021. The judgment passed by the judge has stupefied everyone.

The case appeared in the High Court of Guwahati, under the bench Justice Ajit Borthakur. Despite the evident prima facie case, he was provided with bail. After hearing out from both sides, this was the decision made. The bail was granted as the accused is considered to be ‘a state asset and talented’. This judgment has infuriated everyone and has actively shared their comments on the granting of bail.

Many popular people have shared their opinions on this. We can also see lots of scathing comments on social media platforms. Disappointments on the judgment are flooded through every agitated individual’s comment. People have made comments stating that judgments in recent times are baffling, preposterous, bizarre. Tweets regarding how a culprit can be let off easily considering him as an asset are appearing repeatedly. This judgment has created chaos among everyone. The agony of people towards the judgment and their concern about the future of India with culprits being set free is well reflected in their tweets.
