这两名二十多岁的警圌察曾在12月1日的艾哈迈达巴德同性恋游圌行期间执勤,而受害人当时也参加了这场游圌行。www.ag8.com_【官方首页】-亚游集团于是当受害人走向车子的时候,两名警圌察认出了他,并上前向他搭话,问他参没参与那次游圌行。当受害人表示参与过之后,警圌察就要求他出示驾驶执照和文件,并开始出言辱骂他。受害人反抗并试图逃跑,但两位警圌察开始用警棍殴打他,并对其强行肛圌交,期间一直用言语辱骂诸如"jab poori duniya se marwai hai, toh humse bhi marwa le"这样的话(大意为:既然你都被全世界操过了,那自然也要挨我俩的操)。完事后,受害者衣衫破碎,浑身带伤地回到了家。而二位警圌察当时没有喝醉,神智完全清醒。

The victim belongs toa powerful political family of Gujarat, is not open about his sexualorientation to his family and is averse to filing a police complaint due to theattendant publicity that it would involve. He fears that his high-profilefamily background would cause severe trouble to him during an election year ifhe decides to report the incident. He broke down to his friends after theincident and has been in a suicidal mood, but is being attended to by friends.
The incidenthighlights the daily insecurities faced by the LGBT community in India who areharassed by the authorities. Post the Supreme Court order criminalizinghomosexuality, a lot of gay men have been going back into the closet and arehesitant to speak about their sexual orientation. Whilst rape cases in Indiahave been highlighted with conviction supposedly being fast-tracked after theDelhi gangrape of 2012, incidents involving gay rape are rarely reportedbecause the victims fear a double ‘stigma' – that of rape and of having a ‘criminal' sexualorientation, being forcibly ‘outed' to the society. Most male victims of rapeinternalize their suffering and live them through their daily lives, not beingable to report the criminals and neither being able to tell their near and dearones of their suffering. The Supreme Court, in its verdict on the
377 casedwelt primarily on the poor conviction rate and lack of reported cases ofharassment as a basis for retaining the section.

受害人来自古吉拉特邦一个颇有权势的政治家族,还未将他的性取向和家人公布。而他也不愿向警方报案,因为担心事情宣扬出去后会引发公众关注,自己引人注目的家族背景可能会在选举年给他带来大麻烦。www.ag8.com_【官方首页】-亚游集团他只能在事情发生后向友人倾诉,还有过自杀的念头,如今正由他的朋友照料着。
事件引发了印度同性恋群体的不安全感。印度同性恋的地位一向尴尬。印度最高法院将同性恋定位非法,使得男同性恋们往往不敢出柜,也不敢讲自己的性取向公开。与此同时,在2012年黑公交案过后,印度强奸案的定罪速度已经有了很大的进步,而同性强奸却少有报道,因为受害者们害怕遭受双重"羞辱"——不仅是因为强奸本身,也因为这是一种"有罪"的性行为,会让他们被社会排斥。许多强奸案的男性受害者选择默默忍受,将这些烂在肚子里,既不会报案也不会将这些告诉他们最亲近的人。由于印度刑法377条款的存在(译注:即同性恋非法),此类事件少有立案,也少有报道。

This case is a grimreminder of how criminalizing a sexual act, which Section 377 does is in itselfa reason for cases not being reported and violent crimes also remaining withinthe closet. With victims being criminalized forced to keep their trauma andsufferings under wraps, it is the rapists who walk free and roam the streetsemboldened. With custodians of law themselves colluding to ravage a man whomthey had been sent out to protect, the incident highlights the long and mostlynon existent path to justice that the community faces in India.

此案让人意识到一个冷酷的现实,那就是将同性恋定位非法的刑法377条款本身却成为了让案件不被曝光,罪恶不得惩戒的原因。由于受害人只能默默忍受,那些大摇大摆走在街上的强奸犯就更加大胆。在此案中,两位执法者合谋对一位他们本应保护的公民进行摧残,可见对于印度来说,实现公平正义还有很长很长的一段路要走。
