sexual crimes against women
The study says that while revealing the identity of the survivors of sexual crimes is a punishable offence, the same anonymity is not extended to alleged or actual sexual offenders.
The survivor tried to file an FIR back in 2018 when Mahaakshay was about to get married in 2018, but the police didn’t register a case.
The 22-year-old Dalit woman was injected with a substance and gangraped by two youths in Balrampur, UP.
“This episode sends out a signal… no one can get away by making lewd gestures or teasing women,” said Mimi Chakraborty.
Despite severe injuries, the survivor had managed to give her statement to the police days after the incident.
A woman from Uttar Pradesh’s Noida Sector 20 was allegedly raped by her neighbour. Due to social pressure, the complaint was filed late.
“I met the woman today, she is an extremely courageous woman. We will ensure she gets justice,” DCW Chief Swati Maliwal said.
Upholding the conviction of an accused in a rape case, the Kerala High Court ruled that only the sexual intercourse that is welcomed can be “construed as not violative of the rights of the victim, and accepted as consensual.”
Isn’t it high time already that we finally stop viewing women as objects, and start seeing them as human beings who can decide for themselves?
For far too long women have been violated under vague claims of understanding what they want. It’s time to stop claiming.
The survivor, an HR entrepreneur, had lodged a complaint on May 2, 2020, against the accused who was her employee.
The woman was alone at home on December 7 when the accused sneaked into her house to commit rape. When she was being burnt, a local saw it and informed her mother, who works at a primary health centre.
