People care only if victim dies, says SRFTI sexual harassment survivor 9.7.2017 deccanherald.com
"People become interested in an issue like sexual harassment only if the girls are dead," says Kunjila Mascillamani, a Satyajit Ray Film & Television Institute student who attempted suicide alleging that the institute is a sex violence zoo.

City's 'first same sex marriage' was a case of harassment by parents 5.7.2017 deccanherald.com
The perceived first same sex marriage involving two women in the city appears to be a case of strained relations between one of the women and her parents. Ankita (name changed), a 21-year-old girl residing in Vijayanagar, perhaps, took one of the most important decisions of her life after moving out of her parents' house as she was subjected to domestic violence. She then found solace in a 25-year-old woman, a distant relative. One of the advocates representing the women said they were unaware of any marriage between the two. Even if they have entered into a wedlock, it is not valid as per existing laws in the country. The talk of same sex marriage irked her parents who were forcing her to get married soon after graduation. Not only that, she was under house arrest for days. When Ankita decided to move in with the 25-year-old woman, who was working at a call centre in the city, her parents filed a missing complaint at Vijayanagar police station on May 17. This, despite the fact that they could contact ...
