Our most charismatic Prime-minister Mr.Modi , ” when will you get some time to address these ill fated rape victims. Yes ! we can understand that you are sincerely busy for development of India . But then ,are we not Indians ? “.
Just imagine nearly 68,000 rape cases were registered across the country during 2009-11 but only 16,000 rapists were sentenced to prison, presenting a dismal picture of conviction of sexual offenders. According to the National Crime Records Bureau, 24,206 rape cases were registered in India in 2011 but only 5,724 people were convicted for the crime.
A total of 21,397 rape cases were registered in 2009 but only 5,316 persons could be convicted. The highest number of rape cases — 9,539 — were registered in Madhya Pradesh between 2009-11 but only 2,986 persons were convicted during the period.
The poor rate of conviction is primarily due to prosecution’s inability to gather enough evidence against the accused following inadequate police investigation,” a Home Ministry official said.
