The photoshoot drew criticism from Twitteratis, Facebook users

The shoot had been inspired by the Nirbhaya case, where a 23-year-old student was gangraped.

Mumbai: A fashion shoot named ‘The Wrong Turn’, created a furore on social media and was later pulled down. While many believe, it was themed on the Nibhaya case, where a 23-year-old student was gangraped in a moving bus in Delhi in December 2012, photographer Raj Shetye told Buzzfeed "It is not based on Nirbhaya." He added, "But being a part of society and being a photographer, that topic moves me from inside."

"This is in no way meant to glamorize the act, which was very bad," Shetye told BuzzFeed. "It’s just a way of throwing light on it." 

Shetye defended himself against critics on Facebook.

The gallery was later pulled down.
