    [eGovINDIA] Two women raped in India every hour

    Two women raped in India every hour
    [In just 60-years Indian slides from being best to worst]
    NEW DELHI: Every 60 minutes, two women are raped in this country.
    What is more horrendous is that 133 elderly women were sexually assaulted
    last year, according to the latest report prepared by the National Crime
    Records Bureau (NCRB).

    A total of 20,737 cases of rape were reported last year registering a 7.2%
    increase over the previous year, with Madhya Pradesh becoming the "rape
    capital" of the country by topping the list of such incidents.

    Going by the NCRB statistics, two women are raped in the country every hour.

    Madhya Pradesh (3,010) accounted for 14.5 per cent of the total cases, with West
    Bengal following with 2,106 such incidents. Records of high incidence in other states are
    Uttar Pradesh (1,648), Bihar (1,555) and Rajasthan (1,238).

    The national capital had 598 cases in which 602 women were sexually assaulted.
    In its report 'Crime in India - 2007', the NCRB noted that offenders were known to the
    victims in as many as 19,188 cases (92.5 per cent) that included 6,902 incidents in
    which neighbours were involved.

    Parents or close family members were involved in 405 cases while in 1,448 cases
    relatives were involved. "Everywhere in this country, over 90 per cent of the
    victims are raped by person known to them," a senior police official said.

    Women in the age-group of 18 to 30 years were the largest chunk among the victims
    (11,984) followed by 3,530 victims in the age-group of 30-50 years.
    While 617 victims were below the age of 10 years, 4,507 were between 10 and 18 years,
    the report said.

    A total of 1,85,312 incidents of crime against women were reported in the country as
    compared to 1,64,765 in 2006, recording an increase of 12.5 per cent.
    Andhra Pradesh was at the top of the list of crime against women accounting for 13.3 per
    cent of such incidents recorded in the country followed by Uttar Pradesh with 11.3 per

    Molestation and sexual cases also increased by 5.8 and 9.9 per cent last year.
    Madhya Pradesh, which had the highest number of rape cases, registered a record
    6,772 incidents out of a total of 36,617 molestation cases followed by Andhra Pradesh
    (4406 cases).

    Andhra Pradesh shared the dubious distinction of having the largest number of 3,316
    sexual harassment cases followed by Uttar Pradesh which had 2,882 cases. Total
    number of such cases in the country was 10,950.

    Respect for women seem to be the most worst in Andhra Pradesh which accounted for
    83.5 per cent of cases under Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act of total
    cases across the country. Out of a total 1,200 such cases, Andhra had registered 1,005
    incidents in this regard.

    There was a 20.3 per cent increase in cases of torture by husband and relatives
    with Andhra Pradesh again leading the pack with 11,335 cases out of the 62,128 incidents.
    West Bengal and Rajasthan were not far behind in torturing women registering 9,900
    and 8,170 cases respectively.

    According to the report, one-fourth of the dowry death cases were reported from Uttar
    Pradesh (2,076 cases). Bihar came second in this list with 1,172 cases while the
    national capital has 138 dowry deaths last year.
