外文标题：300 rapes and 500 molestation cases reported in just 2 months
NEW DELHI: In what is being seen as a disturbing trend, Delhi Police has registered 300 FIRs of rape in the first two months of this year. This indicates that on an average, five rape cases are lodged every day in the city. Last year, the number of FIRs filed stood at 2,069.
If molestation cases are added, this year's figure will be double. In the first two months of 2015, the number of FIRs registered under sections of 354 and 509 (molestation and outraging modesty of women) of IPC is over 500, police officers say.
Recently, Delhi Police launched Himmat, an app which allows women to send distress signals to the police control room with a touch on the screen of their smartphones. A WhatsApp group has also been launched through which women can send the picture of the taxi/autorickshaw they are hiring to the police. Besides these, police have also started self-defence programmes for women in almost all districts of the city.

Think they have no sufficient work to keep their minds occupied!Besides the judiciary does not punish the culprits harshly and the case drags on!

Wow, what a shameless progress of the national capital.
In spite of Nirbhaya case, rape has increased in Delhi. Delhi becoming rape capital of India. Un safe place to live in. Creating bad image in mind of tourists who are planning to visit India. Preventive measures to be taken like education, dress code for each location/function, compulsory martial arts training to all women and also creating job opportunities because empty mind is devil's house.

One of The main reason behind rape is alcohol or other drug which gives the people courage to commit a crime they are not in there senses and they dont realise what they have done and whey they get to know the fact its too late. In most of the crimes there is one thing in common if you go close 'NASHA'.

Rape is most evil social crime. India should learn from countries that have good check on this.
