After, doctor has gone to her friend’s house with sonia, he and her friend raped the girl in turn and took pictures(videos) of the rape and threatened to not show the incident.

As a result many Western politicians, actors and directors were facing trial.

In Bangladesh, sexual harassment or rape is regularly headlined in media. Many women are committing suicide because of not tolerating sexual harassment. 5-year child to 45-50 year old women are not left out, One of the reasons is our social system and our outlook. When a woman faced a sexual harassment, we blame the girl, her dress, and clothes or why he goes in outsides?

Others our media are not published the accused picture, they are interested in victims pictures and judicial system are so long. For this reason, it’s increasing day by day in our country. But if we did not blame the woman, we could have blamed the guilty and elimination our society and crime is not cover up, it’s pupublishedn public place. That is must be presented sexual harassment in our society.
