Two Delhi Police officers drive along a dark highway to the home of an accused rapist, reflecting the increasingly sadistic violence they see in the Indian capital.
Delhi Crime, a Netflix miniseries, is rebuilding the police investigation into the 2012 rape and murder of Jyoti Singh. The killing of the students sparked protests in India, reform of the country’s sexual assault laws and took into account the safety of women in the country.
Despite the dark subject matter, Director Richie Mehta says he set out to tell a positive story. “It’s not about illustrating evil,” says Canadian indiana. “It’s about the descendants and the people who take care of it.”
