Thousands of people have signed a petition calling for authorities to intervene.
Two Indian sisters have been sentenced to gang rape as punishment.
Meenakshi Kumari, 23, and her 15-year-old sister are now on the run after an unelected group of men from the Baghpat district made an illegal ruling for the sisters to be gang raped, then stripped naked and paraded through their village with their faces blackened.
According to Amnesty International, “the ‘sentence’ was handed down as punishment after their brother eloped with a married woman.”
An Amnesty International petition calling for authorities to intervene has now been signed more than 150,000 times (you can add your name to the list here.)
