The Aruna Shaunbag case, brought into national attention by journalist Pinki Virani, has been a tragic one.
Aruna, a nurse in Mumbai was sexually assaulted by a ward boy in 1973 and she has been bed ridden till date. There was a demand for mercy killing but the Supreme Court of India turned down the petition.
Now, a Malayalam film titled Maram Peyyumbol is being shot with actor Anumol playing the role of a nurse. The character, it seems has been inspired from Aruna's story.
