We are horrified this week by the news of the rape and torture of a five year old girl in New Delhi. Protesters have taken to the streets following not only the vicious attack, for which a 22 year old man has been arrested, but also after the news that New Delhi police had offered the victim’s family 2,000 rupees not to file a case.

It was the second case of alleged rape in 48 hours to trigger protests and heavy-handed policing, after hundreds of people fought police in the city of Aligarh, 135 km (83 miles) from Delhi on Thursday. One policeman was filmed hitting an old woman hard with a club in the protest.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s office said in a statement that he was deeply disturbed by the latest incident. In December his administration had faced criticism for failing to respond quickly to the horrific attack on the physiotherapy student.

The unprecedented protests by thousands of people across India eventually forced Singh’s government to pass tougher laws to fight gender crimes in March.

New Delhi has the highest number of sex crimes among India’s major cities, with a rape reported on average every 18 hours, according to police figures.

However, most sex crimes in India go unreported, many offenders go unpunished, and the wheels of justice turn slowly, according to social activists who say successive governments have done little to ensure the safety of women and children.

Circle of 6 co-creator Nancy Schwartzman wrote in The Huffington Post today about the motivation behind Circle of 6, the New Delhi localization, and the power of mobile tech to create positive change:

From the beginning, our international team developed Circle of 6 to serve a global population — though we come from different corners of the world, the issue is personal for all of us. Our UX designer and creative director, Thomas Cabus is from Paris and experienced first-hand the bullying and sometime danger of being queer in public spaces. Christine Corbett Moran, our engineer, is based in Zurich and wrote the code for Circle of 6, in part, because she was stalked while a student at M.I.T. As a filmmaker and activist, I bring my own story of sexual assault while living abroad to the work, and together we remain committed to meeting women and young people where they are, and bringing a judgment free and mobile approach to the prevention of sexual violence.

We knew that we were on the radar of smartphone users in India, as only two days after the Vice President announced that we were one of two winners of the Apps Against Abuse challenge, we were mentioned in the Indian press. However, our download numbers from India were modest until December. But as protests shook India, breaking the silence on rape and sexual violence, our downloads spiked, making India have the second highest amount of downloads in the world, only after the United States.
