Rape against girls and women in India is the fourth most common crime. More than 25000 have been across India and 97% were committed by someone known to the victim. Indian Girls and women suffer a lot in the form of a double edged sword at its one end many rapes are still not reported in India and on its other hand they are not treated properly by Police, Media and Health system. This not only leads to a lot of physical and mental problems to the rape victims, but also they at times commit suicide or they are murdered. For helping the Indian Girls and women our Health system and law needs to be very sensitive, so that the culprits are Convicted early and Rape victims gets rehabilitated back into their normal life as early as possible.
