At the very start of 2017, we witnessed a horrendous crime against women in Bengaluru, where they were molested publicly en masse during New Year celebrations. Apart from Bengaluru, cases of multiple sexual assaults have also been reported in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh that have shocked the nation’s consciousness. Women’s modesty has been outraged again and this time it has happened in the nation’s capital, Delhi, where reportedly, crime fighters have systematically targeted criminals who violate women’s rights especially after the shocking Nirbhaya bus rape incident.

This approach, it seems, looking at the Verma case, is mostly confined to laws that are not being implemented at all by our policemen and other authorities in the Indian criminal jurisprudence system – after all how else can you justify the fact that the this person has been posting his acts of violence of kissing girls on streets on YouTube for a long time now. Here is what we know so far about the shocking kissing prank video case:
