Rakshadevi is 5 years old. In November 2005, she was lying in her family hut, while her parents worked in the local fiels. A caste Hindu man from the neighbouring village entered her Dalit village, took her from her cot a a local temple, and raped her brutally. Her internal organs are so badly damaged that she had to have several operations in order to reroute her utinary tract to emerge from the side of her abdomen. 6 months later, the police have not made any arrests.
