While India is still seething over the Delhi gang-rape case and fighting for justice for the victim, Sony’s hit show Crime Patrol is gearing up to feature the case in an episode next weekend. The team might shoot in Delhi for the episode with host Anoop Soni.

Director Subbu Iyer says he chose
to showcase the horrific crime to keep the fire for justice burning.
“The presentation will be sensitive, yet factual. We won’t sensationalise it. We will tell the story of an innocent girl. What happened in that bus was cruel and perverse. We will focus on the mindset of the people who commit such heinous crimes and talk about where such brutality comes from,” says Subbu.
He claims that he’s angry about the situation in India regarding the women’s safety. Subbu says, “I am not going to stop with just this case as there are many others where justice has been delayed. They are many cases that have gone through fast-track courts but the final decision is still stuck in higher courts. In the past too, our show has covered several other cases where justice has been denied or delayed.”
