It is said that the ordeal of a rape victim does not end but begins after she files a report. Her rerape continues at the hands of the media, the police, the lawyers and even the medical personnel. The least that we as responsible members of the society can do is to conduct her physical examination in a meticulous and responsible manner. At the same time, it is required that we provide therapeutic and preventive services to her. The best way to prevent further cases is proper collection of evidence in a systematic manner as this ensures that the culprit is booked.
