Crimes against women on rise in India: Four minor girls raped in last four days in Haryana

Crimes against women on rise in India: Four minor girls raped in last four days in Haryana
Shares

Four rapes, mostly of minors, in the last four days in Haryana have raised serious questions about women’s safety in the northern state.

The assaults on women and girls — and mutilation of their private parts, in some cases — remind of the brutal gang rape and murder of a physiotherapy student in Delhi in December 2016 that led to a huge uproar across the country. Delhi was then called the rape capital of the country.

For Haryana , which has been known for a very poor sex ratio, the incidents come at a time when the Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP government announced that the number of girls born in the state had touched an all-time high of 914 per 1,000 boys in 2017.
