In a movement spearheaded by Swati Jai Hind, head of the Women's Commission of Delhi, hundreds of men marched to the heart of the city, to Connaught Place, to protest the recurring incidences of rape in the Indian capital.

Boys and men supporting the movement marched without their shirts, clad in their boxer shorts to give a message to society that "clothes do not cause rape, sick mentality does."
