Indian Mum With Gun Takes To Streets Seeking Justice For Rape Victims. Photos


A mum with a gun has taken the fight on the spiralling sex attacks in India into her own hands by patrolling the streets of her local village and seeking out rapists. Shahana Begum, 42, from Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh, northern India, did just that in one typical instance for her in 2013, where she caught three men who had raped a girl for two days.

The mother-of-four, who sees herself as a guardian of the people, handed them over to police and forced them to face up to their crimes, which resulted in the main perpetrator marrying the victim.

She regularly visits the police station to confront officers for not following up complaints or pokes her shotgun into the faces of suspected sex abusers on her fight for justice.

Ms Begum is famous among teenagers and women in her area as the ‘Bandookwali Chachi’ which translates as ‘aunt with a gun’.
