    Many cases go unreported due fear of isolation and associated humiliation. This boy kept silent till family found out due to video upload. Think how many cases go unreported on both genders, in India at least they make hue and cry to get rid of this evil in the society, here we keep mum to hide it underneath, where it will keep eating society like termite.
