Survivors of Prajwal Revanna Sex Scandal Face Ongoing Trauma

While Member of Parliament Prajwal Revanna remains abroad amidst accusations of sexual abuse, survivors in Hassan, Karnataka, endure immense hardships. Taunted by their partners, mistreated by family, and subjected to public humiliation on social media, many survivors have retreated into isolation or fled their homes.

Media platforms exacerbate the situation by disclosing identifying details, deterring survivors from seeking justice. Activists stress the importance of punishing those who expose survivors and advocate for tougher questioning of perpetrators, not victims. Despite offers of counseling, survivors grapple with ongoing trauma and a lack of confidence in the justice system, exacerbated by political rhetoric casting doubt on their intentions.
