TAMIL NADU, INDIA – Would-be rapists in India may be in for a shock the next time they try to assault a woman.
Three engineering students from SRM University in Chennai have invented what they call anti-rape underwear. It’s a garment that can emit up to 3.8 million volts of electricity! The students said they wanted to develop the underwear, called Society Harnessing Equipment, or SHE, to combat the ongoing sexual violence on women in the country.
This after the gang rape that led to the death of a young woman in New Delhi, and reports of sexual assaults on female tourists.
The garment will also send GPS information to family and emergency officials.
