It all began when Sunitha Krishnan uploaded an edited version of a gang-rape video on YouTube in the first week of February this year.

It was one of nine such videos that were being circulated as MMS clips.

A rape survivor herself, Sunitha asked viewers to help identify the rapists in what she called #ShameTheRapistCampaign.

She moved the apex court as police did not make any arrests, though the men in the videos were clearly visible.

When the CBI made the first breakthrough on March 24, 2015, by arresting Bhubaneswar-based builder Subrat Sahu on charges of raping a woman and filming the act, Sunitha felt her efforts had not gone in vain.

But now, the social activist is deeply disturbed. On Friday, Sunitha’s lawyer told a Supreme Court bench that she has received 90 new pieces of 'absolutely shocking' online footage, mostly from rape victims who want them to be probed by the CBI.

Justice Madan B. Lokur, who is heading a special bench in the court hearing social justice matters, has expressed shock.

“Is it possible to have a mechanism in place to deal with a situation like this? What is the cyber cell of the police in each state doing?” he asked Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Maninder Singh who represented the Centre. (Yahoo)
