35 rapists acquitted

The High Court of Kerala has acquitted all but one of the 36 accused in the Suryanelly sex scandal. The prosecution failed to adduce adequate evidence before the court to ensure proper punishment showing how infirm the legal system was when it came to protecting women. The verdict points to the gender bias inherent in the Indian legal system, and the need to overhaul it to ensure that women received as much legal protection as men.
