Women being attacked and raped is a major issue in India. Part of the problem is the inefficiency of the judicial system. The other part is that victims are often too scared to come forward.
The country has stiffer penalties for rapists and even work hard to get those cases moved through the system faster. The poor people are the ones that suffer the most. They have a harder time getting justice. Share away, people.
