A facebook user Arvind Barbaad through his post brought out utterly saddening reality of our country.
In his post, he said his friend, who is a researcher at a top institution of India, a screenplay writer and a poet, was drugged and sexually assaulted.
Barbaad, who lives in the US, shared a couple of screenshots of the conversation he had with his friend, who is gay. The friend alleged that he was drugged and then sexually assaulted by another guy he had gone out with.
But the worst thing is he can’t report this to police because being a homosexual is still a crime in India.
The victim, evidently depressed, said he cannot report because the police will arrest him on charges of being a homosexual and accuse him of going out with the guy willingly.
The post has visibly left many frustrated. People asked does being a gay allow the other man to rape him? This is the question we all need to be asking.However, as pointed out by a user, the victim can indeed file a complaint.
