A human rights organisation has demanded the so-called 'two finger rape test' to see if a woman has been assaulted to be banned.
Activists argue the unreliable and invasive test on a rape victim is a second assault on an already traumatised woman.
The call comes days after a 23-year-old student died after being gang-raped by six men on a bus in Delhi, thrusting India's attitude to rape into the spotlight.
The test requires a doctor to insert two fingers into a women’s vagina apparently to determine whether the victims are 'virgins' or 'used to sexual intercourse.'
They believe it helps them to judge whether the hymen has been recently torn or if the women is already sexually active
