Society should be united against this and until society changes, there will be no reduction in crimes against women. While people are becoming irresponsible, people and society should shoulder their responsibility and stand against such black-hearted people who repeatedly humiliate women as a source of entertainment. Women also have an equal right to live and society must give them their rights. (CNI)
