Kathua, Unnao, Surat,Manipur,Delhi the stretching list of gang rape cases across the nation has enraged people. Last time, something like this shook people’s conscience was in 2012 which Nirbhaya was brutally gang raped in a moving bus in Delhi. The sad part is nothing has changed, even after so many promises were made at that time.
The Kathua victim was just 8 years old, Surat victim was just 11, Manipur girl who was raped and then set on fire was also 11 years old. The list can go on and on.
What is more shocking fact that is most of the cases, it has turned out that these minor girls are sexually abused and molested by someone they already know or someone, who is known to their families.
According to the report by child rights NGO CRY, sexual offence is committed against a child in India every 15 minutes and there has been an increase of more than 500 per cent over the past 10 years in crime against minors.
“While Uttar Pradesh tops the list with 15 per cent of recorded crimes against children, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh closely follow with 14 per cent and 13 per cent respectively,” the report said.

What was her fault? What she wearing the revealing clothes? Or did she invite rape? A four-months-old –baby was raped and murdered in the Rajwada area. The infant’s body was found in the basement area of the heritage Shiv Vilas Palace, blood smears on the stairs telling a horror story. Hardened policeman were nearly moved to tears as they conducted a preliminary examination of the ravaged body and carried it away in a little bundle. A suspect, a member of the family, is in custody.
