    New Delhi (Sputnik): The rape of a veterinarian and her gruesome murder in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad last week has shamed the entire country. Though the country has legislated one of the most stringent statutes for perpetrators of crime against women, India reports an average 92 rapes every day, according to a federal crime report.

    The name of a 26-year-old veterinary doctor, who was raped and her charred body recovered in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad, is trending on top on a porn site, XVIDEOS.COM, in India.

    Netizens were outraged to see the development three days after the incident and commented that it shows the “ever-growing rape culture” in the country. 

    Meanwhile, four accused in the case have been arrested so far and the national outrage forced Telangana Chief K Chandrashekar Rao to order a fast-track court to try the accused. 

    India banned 827 porn sites, including PornHub and xVideos.com in October 2018 following a court order

    Porn companies, however, launched mirror URLs such as pornhub.net after pornhub.com became inaccessible. Major internet service providers Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio have blocked the mirror URLs.

    However, at present porn sites are just a click away. As per the analysis by London-based Top10VPN (virtual private network), mobile downloads of virtual private network (VPN) apps in India grew 405%, to 57 million in the 12 months starting October 2018. India is currently biggest market by downloads in the world.
