TV show "Crime Patrol" will depict the Dec 16, 2012 gang rape. Actor Anup Soni, who hosts the reality-based crime show, says the makers are not trying to sensationalize the issue, but they are definitely trying to raise some questions.

"The entire nation is aware about the truth and also the facts about this incident and we don't do any add-on on our show. We are not trying to sensationalize the issue here by enacting it on 'Crime Patrol'," Anup said in a telephonic interview.

On Dec 16, 2012, a 23-year-old physiotherapy intern was raped by six people, including a juvenile, inside a moving bus in Delhi. Four of the convicts were recently sentenced to death.

Anup says "we are trying to raise a few questions through the show".

"(We will tell) What all precautions and remedies are taken if anything like this happens in the future. This was a special case and thus was sent to fast-track court. So our question is - 'Will the same thing be done with other similar cases?'".

The actor also said that every issue is sensitive for them to shoot, but since the incident led to a national outrage, they had to be extra cautious while shooting it.

"Every episode and every issue - be it rape, kidnap, or a murder, all of it is very sensitive. It is very difficult for us to shoot or enact all of these. But with this particular episode, we had to be very careful because the entire nation is aware about it and people came on the roads to show their anger," Anup said.

The episodes narrating the brutal incident will be showcased Saturday and Sunday on Sony Entertainment Television.
