On the 13th of August 2017, an interim bail was granted to Vikas Garg, Karan Chhabra and Hardik Sikri, the three accused in what is commonly known as the ‘Jindal rape case’ 1 , where it was alleged that the three, on multiple occasions, committed rape, gang rape and blackmailing of a fellow student of O.P. Jindal Global University. This order granted by the Punjab and Haryana High Court has backtracked all developments made in the Indian legal framework to break the patriarchal shackles to transform into a slightly more inclusive space. Rape victims face a plethora of challenges if they wish to get justice, ranging from the biases of the judiciary and the executive to the character shaming of the victims. And one of the primary challenges they face as a result is to prove that a rape occurred in the first place, and the fundamentally patriarchal nature of the justice system is to blame. The Mathura rape case2 of 1972 and the Jindal rape case of 2015 will prove this claim.
