By JUAN FERREYRA SECTION: BOOKS; Pg. 4 LENGTH: 1284 words In the last year, the Delhi police have received numerous complaints of sexual violence and rape by students in the city.
This was followed by a spate of rapes and sexual assaults on the roads, especially during the summer months.
In a bid to curb these cases, Delhi Police Commissioner, Rakesh Sharma, announced on April 7 that a new law will take effect that would prohibit the “entrapment of women by their male acquaintances, relatives or anyone in the society.”
The new law was passed on March 31 and will apply to both male and female students, as well as those who have committed sexual violence against women.
It will apply retroactively to the rapists who were already arrested for violating the new law.
The new legislation is the first of its kind in the country.
It is meant to combat sexual violence on campus and also to protect the women who have been sexually assaulted.
According to a study by the United Nations, India is home to the highest number of sexual harassment cases in the world, with almost 1.3 million incidents of sexual assault reported to the police.
In India, there are approximately 4,400 cases of sexual and gender-based violence each year.
India is also home to a high rate of sexual assaults.
According the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), the number of rapes on college campuses in India increased by 50 percent from 2008 to 2016.
The data shows that the rate of rape is highest among the rural and backward sections of India, where the crime rate is highest.
According, a study carried out by the National Commission for Women, which was published in January this year, there were about 10,400 rapes on campus in 2017, a jump of 24 percent from the previous year.
The increase is due to the rise in the number and severity of cases of rape in the rural areas, where there are a lot of young men.
Women who have come forward with their own reports of rape, which are often ignored by the police, have been harassed and abused by the authorities.
Many women who do not want to report sexual assault have resorted to using their own names or social media profiles to identify themselves.
Many have reported that the police has also intimidated them and tried to pressure them to give false names.
The police have also denied them the right to pursue legal action.
While the Delhi rape case is one of the highest cases of rapes in the nation, it is not the only one.
There are more than 3,000 cases of cases that are under investigation, according to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), which is the government agency responsible for tracking and recording crime.
A study carried by the NCRB in 2017 reported that India had recorded over 6,300 rape cases during the first half of 2017.
It also said that the country recorded 5,914 rapes in 2016.
to the NCRS, India has the highest percentage of rapes reported in the past 10 years, at 22.8 percent.
The NCRB study said that between 2004 and 2016, India recorded an estimated 1,973 rapes.
The study also noted that the number in the last decade is only a fraction of the actual number of cases.
It said that in the first six months of this year there were more than 14,000 sexual assaults and sexual harassment incidents reported by women.
The number of reported sexual assaults is still higher than in any year since 1990.
A total of 12,500 rape cases have been registered so far this year.
Of these, 7,000 have been reported to police and only around 2,000 of these cases have led to a conviction, according the NCRC report.
The rest are being investigated by various agencies.
The rape cases are not just an issue for women.
While most of the rapes that occur in India are against women, a large number of men are victims of sexual crime, too.
According a survey carried out in June this year by the Times Now TV channel, about 10.2 percent of men in the state of Uttar Pradesh are sexually abused by their wives.
In Uttar Pradesh, the average age of an abused male is 23 years.
According TOI, out of the 2,096 sexual assaults in Uttar Pradesh during the last financial year, a total of 8,984 victims are women.
In 2016, a woman was raped in a village in Uttarabad.
The woman is still recovering from her injuries.
Another 22.7 percent of cases in 2016 were against a man, while the rest of the cases were against women and children.
A majority of victims of rape are between the ages of 12 and 17.
The age of the woman being raped is not always taken into account when determining the age of consent, the report said.
According another study carried in February by the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), a research institute based in Hyderabad, India, the
