Chennai was shaken after one of the most gruesome rape cases in the city came to light on Tuesday. An 11-year-old girl was raped by 17 men for a duration of seven months. The 17 men were arrested and thrashed by lawyers when taken to the court on Tuesday.


The apartment residents were thrown in distress as most of the arrested men were staff from the flat. Confused on whether new staff should be hired or if the security agency should be changed, the women of the apartment have come together to guard the house.


One of the residents reportedly said, "They used to smile, salute and we trusted them. Plumbers had free access to our homes. Now we are scared. They can knock us down anytime. Earlier, we concerned about the danger lurking outside, now the danger is within." CCTV cameras will be set up around the house for surveillance.
