And here’s another reason why all Indian men and women need to hear and understand that Indian women have the right to choose when they have sex and with whom.
//If a body has evidence of rape or even sexual intercourse just before death, the information is of paramount importance in the investigation of the case and would, therefore, find a mention in the post-mortem report. There is no such mention in the post-mortem report. Yet, the coroner concluded that she was ‘sexually active’.
It is a malicious term in the case of an unmarried woman and is used with a purpose. There has never been a post-mortem report that said about an unmarried man that he had been ‘sexually active’. So why should the terminology be used only against unmarried women?
Is it because a qualified gynaecologist can make out whether a woman is sexually active? The fact is there is no way in which a doctor can arrive at the conclusion, unless the woman in question had delivered a baby or had evidence of sexual contact with a man just before death. The absence of hymen is now more natural than unnatural in these days when girls increasingly use bicycles for commuting or exercise, or wear intrusive tampons.//

The watchman in a Wadala housing society entered an apartment using a stolen key, he claims he only wanted to rape the young law graduate, but when she fought back, he slit her throat.
He obviously realizes rape is excusable in Indian society, robbery or murder are not.
Take a look at these comments below the news article.
kumar_obsi - If she had only latched the door from inside she could have saved herself.
Leo - Then how will her live-in partner enter the flat in the morning daily???
They obviously believe that she was wrong to have a live-in partner.
