40 years old Raped Victim wants her daughter killed

As outrage grows over the gang rape and murder of teenagers hanged from a tree, mother of 14-year-old 'untouchable' raped earlier this year says she wishes her daughter had been killed too

Brimti Ram, 40, had been living with her Dalit family near Hisar, just 105 miles from the capital Delhi, when her daughter and three friends were seized by relatives of her feudal landlord.
They were drugged and raped throughout the night.
Her family was first boycotted by the upper caste landlords for whom they have worked for generations as unpaid bonded labour and have since been driven from their village because they refuse to drop the charges against the accused.
Mrs Ram said they have been so shamed that neither she nor her 16-year-old sister will ever be able to find a husband.
She had heard of the murders of the two Dalit girls in Badaun in Uttar Pradesh and said she could understand the pain of their families, but she wishes her daughter had been killed too.
