Woman gets raped every 22 minutes in India

    Rape in India is the fourth most common crime against women in India. According to the National Crime Records Bureau 2013 annual report, 24,923 rape cases were reported across India in 2012.Out of these, 24,470 were committed by relative or neighbor.
The number of rape incidents in India is alarming. According to the National Crime Records Bureau, a woman gets raped every 22 minutes in India.
The situation seems to have not improved despite increased scrutiny following the December 2012 high profile case of the gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old student on a Delhi bus. The incident triggered a wave of protests across the country, with people demanding an end to the sexual abuse of women. The case prompted a new examination of data on sexual assault in the country.
In March, India’s parliament introduced tougher rape laws, including the death penalty for repeat offenders and those whose victims are left in a "vegetative state."
