‘India gang rape’ fashion shoot showing model being harassed on board bus sparks outrage

A photo shoot apparently inspired by the gang rape and murder of a Delhi student has sparked outrage in India.

Images from the shoot, taken by Mumbai photographer Raj Shetye, show models in glamorous clothes aboard a bus. Several shots show a woman being harassed while another appears to show one woman in the process of being sexually assaulted.

The photographer, however, has defended the project saying it is an attempt to force people to think about women’s safety.

The series of images, entitled “The Wrong Turn”, was initially posted on the Behance.net platform and the photographer’s own website. But they have been taken down, apparently amid an outcry in the Indian media and on social networking sites.
