India remains the most unsafe country for women in the world. Lower caste women in particular bear the brunt, with little to no access to justice.
A 14-year-old Dalit girl of Mathura’s Kosi Kalan area was allegedly kidnaped and raped repeatedly in Delhi for resisting prostitution. The captors wanted to sell her to a brothel for just Rs 3 lacs.
This is the second incident of rape reported in Kosi Kaalan police station in past two weeks. Previously a 21-year-old woman was allegedly raped by a youth in a moving car on national highway.
In UP, there are 36,467 registered crime cases against scheduled castes in the last three years.
India has failed to oblige Article 2 of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women which aims to protect women against any act of discrimination.
