When she was 16, she was raped by 42 men in 40 days.
As a teen, she was abducted by a bus conductor who raped her, then passed her onto others, some of who were powerful and well-connected in Kerala at the time.
She was then discarded with no money and in no condition to return home - she couldn't sit or stand because of her injuries.
35 people accused of raping her were convicted. But the Kerala High Court, three years later, reversed that decision, holding only one person guilty.
