The development in the pornographic business has crossed the boundaries of imagination. Going one step ahead now the Rape Videos are available in the Indian markets in North India wants to know more? Read the complete report here.
According to the information available from the reliable sources, the dark trade is booming in India. The shops across UP (Uttar Pradesh) now sell the Rape videos for Rs. 50 to 150. According to the sources, the prices are dependent on the “Exclusivity” of the clips shown in the video. It is not the hidden fact that many of the rapists’ records the crime on their mobile phones to blackmail the victims later on and perhaps the same videos are now transformed into the CDs and DVDs that is sold in the shops across the state and also made available online, claimed the sources.
The clip details as described by one of the news media portal, A group of men have surrounded a cowering schoolgirl in a sugarcane field somewhere in Uttar Pradesh. Her folded hands are shaking and her eyes are wide open with terror. She looks around desperately, hoping against hope for someone to save her. But her cries don’t reach anyone. Someone can be heard tittering in the background. And then one of the goons pounces on her.
The above example gives the clear idea as what level this mafia is performing to make the video clips available. The sales of videos are going on in all the UP shops right under the nose of Police and Administration claimed the sources. Hundreds of thousands of videos are being sold on the daily basis in these shops, claimed the sources. The prices are decided on the lengths and exclusivity of the video clips which ranges from 30 seconds to 5 minutes in duration.
Though the business of video clips is going on in the large scale, but still it is ‘under the counter’ and dealers talks only to those who comes laced with strong references, said the sources. “Porn is passe. These real life crimes are the rage,” said a shopkeeper at Agra’s Kasganj market. “Dealers will download videos directly into your smartphone or put them in your pen drive.” Sometimes individuals or organized gangs download such stuff from Twitter, Tumbler or Facebook accounts and sell them. Sometimes, however, culprits involved in rapes or assaults take videos of the crime and post them online. It is a matter of time before they go viral,” said a shopkeeper in Agra’s Kasganj market. At another shop, a man is telling teenagers that they might even know the girl in the “latest, hottest” video. In the horrifying clip, two men have pinned down a girl, who looks like she is in her early 20s. Her boyfriend is being beaten up. “Maaf karo, maaf karo (Spare me),” he is crying. The girl pleads, “Kam se kam, video toh mat utaaro (At least don’t shoot a video).”
According to the national daily, the Times of India (TOI), rapists invariably record the crime on their phones. It is then used as a blackmailing tool to either bully the victims, stopping them from going to the cops or to pressurize them into further sexual favours. “A threat to post the rape online is very potent,” he said. Speaking to TOI, Agra city SP Ghule Sushil Chandrabhan said, “In the past we , ave conducted raids at Tajganj and Sadar areas and arrested one for selling explicit videos and pirated films. We will continue to raid such places.” Sources in the police said it would be close to impossible to put an end to the trend.
On Wednesday, as a TOI team visited markets at Belanganj, Balkeshwar, Kamla Nagar and a few other areas, it found that such videos were easily available. It’s the same story in other cities, whether Meerut or Bareilly, where last week a 21 year-old committed suicide when she found that after posting her videos online, one accused even sold her nude pictures to local residents at Rs 3 per print.
