DALITS WOMEN UNSAFE IN INDIA


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.
