An Indian bus driver who participated in the rape and murder of a girl now blames her for wearing short skirt.
The driver, Mukesh Singh, went on to tell the police that the he should not be jailed for the offence because the girl should have fought back while being raped.
According to Worldwide Weird News, Singh, one of the group of men convicted of raping and murdering the 23-year-old medical student on a bus, suggested that the brutal assault was to teach the victim a lesson for being out late at night with a friend.
When the incident that dented the image of India as a country where the crime of rape has been rampant, the victim and a male friend were on their way home after watching a movie when they accepted a lift from a private bus carrying five men and a 17-year-old boy.
The men beat the friend of the victim and brutally raped the woman before throwing them off the bus. The woman suffered terrible injuries to the internal organs and died.
Four of the men were sentenced to death by hanging while the fifth defendant in the case was found dead in prison where he was being held for trial.
Singh, who was driving the bus and together with the other three adult men has filed an appeal in the case, suggested that victim and her friend were attacked for being out late at night.
Singh also criticizes the victim for defending herself, saying that when being raped, she should have just be quiet and allow the men to do their business.
Singh also said that women are more guilty of rape than men. He said that a decent woman does not walk on the street at 9:00 pm.
