A fashion shoot depicting a woman being sexually assaulted on a bus stirs memories of the infamous 2012 Delhi gang rape, outraging everyone.
The photo series, called The Wrong Turn, shows a young woman in different outfits fending off a group of young men on a bus. With its allusions to the grisly details of the infamous Delhi 2012 gang rape incident, in which 6 men assaulted and raped a 23-year-old woman in a bus, resulting in injuries that her death afterwards, many have condemned the fashion spread.
Taken by Mumbai-based photographer Raj Shetye and posted earlier in August on the photography site Behance, the photos caused uproar among the rape victim's family, women's rights groups, and netizens around the world, with commentators accusing Raj of exploiting the 2012 incident and glamourising the act of rape. The photos have since been removed from its original site though they have been republished on news websites.
