India rape victim honoured with pseudonyms
Amid solemn memorials and angry rallies around the world for a young Indian woman gang-raped and killed last month in New Delhi, activists demanding justice have given the victim pseudonyms to honour her by.
It's against the law in India to identify a rape victim. The British tabloid the Daily Mail has reported that the young woman's family wants her name to be revealed, while other media outlets have contradicted that account, saying her father has denied ever supplying his daughter's name to any newspaper.
In the meantime, reports CBC's Curt Petrovich, mourners at a rally in Surrey, B.C., prepared signs with aliases for the girl, based on the Punjabi words for "prized possession," "lightning" and "fearless."
