MUMBAI: Crimes against women are on a scary spiral in the city. Rape cases surged 49% in 2014-15 as against the previous year, and instances of molestation were up 39%, shows a white paper released by NGO Praja on Tuesday. In four years since 2010-11, the city has seen reported rape cases jump 290% and molestation cases rise 247%.
There will not be much hue and cry over this but let a man be caught eating beef, there will be an uproar, the parliament building will have tremors.
I Fully agree with you.The cops are busy monitoring cows. They have no time to stop lesser crimes like rape. The jail sentence for cow slaughter is higher than the rape. Naturally cops are spending time where govt's focus is.
In the present society, a cow is safer than women.
These UP, Bihar, delhi guys are the majour rapists, lets prevent these criminal to enter amchi mumbai
I m so deeply saddened to read this. Mumbai used to be one of the safest cities in the country.
It never was. Only you never heard the rape cases reported in the papers and media.
no place in India is safe for women anymore
It is a shame on us to publish this as if it is an achievement. What is the government is doing? Government is silent on this and all the rape criminals are not punished. It is an atrocity and law has to be changed to give deterrent punishment to the criminals. This has to be stopped at any cost. Government must study this and take steps to stop this crime
Sadly, Mumbai is becoming Rape City. Worst part is more & more cases of juvenile involved in rape is increasing I believe that is mainly due to improper punishment in case of Nirbhay rape case. If all accused have being given capital punishment it would have given strong warning to all such sick minded people. Also, age limit should be changed to 13-14 in case of such cases from 18.
