Abstract: A 20–year-girl was molested by a mob 16 youth on the night of July 9, 2012, in Guwahati, capital city of the northeastern Indian state of Asom. The incident that lasted for over 40 minutes was captured on video by a local news channel. The crew were subjected to sever criticism by human rights associations for not rescuing the girl though they were in a position to do so. Some even accused the crew of instigating the mob. The management of the news channel, however, backed the crew, saying they had discharged their primary responsibilities as journalists and provided the strongest possible evidence against the accused.
