Rape videos up for sale in Delhi, UP markets; sold for Rs 50-150

New Delhi: Despite strict punishments to those found guilty in heinous crime like rape and molestation, the assailants seemed to be unfazed and continue to commit dreadful acts and that too without any fear.

Along with this, what disturbs one even more is that the rape incidents which are video graphed are now easily available and up for sale in the markets of Delhi and Uttar Pradesh and that too at a throwaway price. These videos are being sold in numerable markets.

The demand of these videos which are between 30 seconds to 5 minutes is such that they are being sold at a price between Rs 50 to Rs 150. To tell you, it is a little difficult to get these videos however it is easy for those who come to the dealers via some trusted sources. Once the bargain over the same is done, the dealers can download such videos directly into the smartphone of a customer or put them in a pen drive.

A dealer while talking to a daily said, “Sometimes individuals or organised gangs download such stuff from Twitter, Tumbler or Facebook accounts and sell them. Sometimes, however, culprits involved in rapes or assaults take videos of the crime to blackmail them and also post them online.”

He added, “A threat to post the rape online is very potent.”

This proves the lawlessness in the national capital and UP as such videos are also available in the markets of Belanganj, Balkeshwar, Kamla Nagar, Agra, Meerut, Bareilly and Aligarh among others.
