"I lost out on life. I think I should not have complained against the rape. The incident left me and my father isolated. Since then, not a single relative has visited us. Their attitude has ensured that I am stuck with the stigma of being a rape victim," she said.
Besides, she is also dependent on sedatives to get over the memories of the crime and the trauma. "I cannot sleep without tablets. I feel drowsy even during the day due to regularly taking medicines. That, in a way, helped me overcome the abuse," she said.
