She started a national campaign “#ShameTheRapists” to shame the rapists and get them punished.
“These rapist have posted the videos of them raping/sexually assaulting women on ‘whatsup’(I have checked they are not enacted videos). I have taken the liberty of protecting the identity of the victim. They are prowling around and are a threat to any woman or child. Please help us trace them. We need to nationally shame them and then hand them to the authorities. I don’t know how many people saw these videos and remained silent. WE WILL NOT.”, says Sunitha.
