The brutal rape and murder of an 8-year-old girl in Jammu’s Kathua has triggered outrage across the nation. As people are taking to the streets to demand justice for the child, there is also a section that has come out in defense of the accused.
But as the social media storm makes one wonder how low can debates around the incident sink, a Reddit user shared some shocking information. The user shared a screenshot that showed that the name of the victim has been actively searched on a porn website as it has become the top trending topic.
In a disturbing turn of events, a large number of people seem to be looking for footage of the rape as the child’s name has surpassed searches related to Bollywood celebs.
This also raises concerns about the user base of porn websites, as previous reports have suggested that people with sadistic and voyeuristic tendencies form a huge chunk of the viewers on such sites.
The incident triggered a storm on social media as users expressed disgust over people looking for rape videos even as the nation is mourning the incident
