465 rape cases registered in 2011 (till December 10th)
489 rape cases in 2010

According to media reports, Delhi Police says a woman is raped
every 18 hours and molested every 14 hours.
Delhi Commissioner of Police, B.K.Gupta accepts that ‘Not all rape cases get reported’
WHAT IS THE ATTITUDE OF THE DELHI POLICE?
Instead of working to prevent such crimes, protecting the rights of victims, or ensuring justice, this is what they have said on tehelka.com
“Indecent clothing prompts men to rape…. Their mothers did not bring them up properly….They asked for it….
Women dress up to attract men….. Girls don’t stay within their limits….Must have been friendly with the rapist…
Records show she had a relationship….. They have made rape a business…
They are from the working class, it’s all about money….”
WE DEMAND ACTION:
· The Commissioner of Police must publicly take responsibility for the statements made by his department/officials. He must break his silence on the matter, and state clearly that sexual assault is a crime that will not be tolerated.
· The Police must immediately respond to complaints of crimes against women and follow the legal process. Action must be taken against police personnel who fail to do this.
WOMEN HAVE A RIGHT TO BE SAFE — IN HOMES, ON STREETS, IN BUSES
AND IN WORKPLACES!
