India which claims to be a growing economic superpower and all the glamour, glitter and blitz that we see about India in media is largely unrealistic when one really witnesses India from within and especially around the rural areas.
Rape & sexual molestation is highest in India and so are the crimes against women and children. Much of the culprits go unpunished.
A minor girl in Uttar Pradesh has committed suicide after she was allegedly gangraped. The incident took place in the Lakhimpur Kheri district, where another teenager was killed inside a police compound after a rape attempt last month. 16-year-old Pooja’s body was found hanging from the ceiling fan in her house. In her suicide note, the Class XII student said she brought dishonor to her family and requested that a post-mortem should not be conducted.
Uttar Pradesh is once again in the news for all the wrong reasons. Two more rape cases were reported on Saturday including that of a Dalit minor girl in the Ibrahimpur village of Barabanki. The girl was attacked while she was on her way from the local market. Her parents lodged a complaint with the police and a local youngster has been arrested for the crime.
