Year Reported rapes[1]

2008 21,467

Victims of rape are increasingly reporting their rapes and confronting the perpetrators. Although women are increasing their exposure to sexual harassment by leaving the home more often, they are becoming more independent. Women are becoming more independent and educated, which is increasing their likelihood to report their rape.[30]
Although rapes are becoming more frequently reported, many go unreported or have the complaint files withdrawn due to the perception of family honour being compromised.[30] Women frequently do not receive justice for their rapes, because police often do not give a fair hearing, and/or medical evidence is often unrecorded which makes it easy for offenders to get away with their crimes under the current laws.[30]

Current crime rate

Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore have accounted for 16.2%, 9.5% and 8.1% respectively of the total IPC crimes reported from 35 mega cities

Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi said 70 per cent of the perpetrators in rape cases belonged to the age group of 21–35 years. “Crime-mapping analysis of the city suggested that any woman in a locality is surrounded by between 250 and 400 men who would not think twice before assaulting a woman. Analysis also suggests that 60 to 65 per cent of women victims are between 15–30 years old. Their self-defence expertise shall be a sure counter to men with sick mindset,” added Bassi. “… almost 39 per cent of the rapes were committed by friends and family members’ friends, something which cannot be prevented by the police.

Measures to prevent crime by 2020

Understand that the best thing that can be done to prevent rape is to prevent people from raping.

  • Run campaigns to create awareness in people about what safety measures they can take to avoid being victim.

Research needs to be done on criminals as what makes them commit such crimes, understand the psyche of these criminals so that you can educate them for not to repeat such crimes.

Educate women to take the help of technology.

Introduce many schools on self defence mechanism for women.

  • Reform crime laws
