Women and girls in India are constantly reminded not to step out of the house late at night or at odd hours, but for one 11-year-old girl in Gwalior, even staying inside the house was not safe as 3 men entered her home and gangraped her in front of her mother and brother.

According to reports, the girl was at home with her mother and 14-year-old brother when three men entered their house and threatened to shoot her mother and brother before they raped the girl.
