"Today I saw this rape video on twitter which is showing face of the girl and at few places name is also there which is horrible. The reporter who is the source of this video must also go to jail under POCSO. He is already charge-sheeted 4 times before and I don't know who is the judge who gave him bail which he shouldn't have got," she added.
