Today, rapes and molestation in India is at peak. If one goes by the latest statistics of National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), every day 93 women are being raped in the country, eve teasing & molestation is another issue. According to NCRB data, there is a gradual increase in the number of rapes reported in India - from 24,923 in 2012 to 33,707 in 2013.
Despite of several protests after Nirbhaya incident in New Delhi, the national capital continuous to be the unsafe city in the country. The number of rapes in Delhi has almost doubled from 585 in 2012 to 1,441 in 2013. Delhi is followed by Mumbai (391), Jaipur (192) and Pune (171) among the top unsafe cities in the country.
It is also revealed that Madhya Pradesh has recorded the maximum rapes in 2013 among all other states with 4,335. In April this year, a 14-year-old dalit girl was allegedly gang-raped by five people on a moving bus in Madhya Pradesh.
In another incident in Madhya Pradesh in June this year, a tribal woman was also allegedly gang-raped by ten persons, including her husband after a land dispute.
It is followed by Rajasthan (3285), Maharashtra (3063) and Uttar Pradesh (3050).
A total 923 rape cases were reported in Tamil Nadu, which means 3 per day. The most horrifying fact is that majority of the offenders are known to the victims. NCRB statistics shows that 31,807 (94%) were familiar to the accused, which includes neighbours (10782), other known persons (18171), relatives (2315) and parents (539).
It is also revealed that most victims are aged between 18 and 30 years (15,556) and 14 and 18 years (8,877). Activists argue that legal system is slow to prosecute rape cases, but officials say the number of rape cases have increased because of the awareness on the part of the victims, who come forward to lodge complaints.

Above all source are from another blog which contained rape statistics. Besides rapes of foreign nationals have ruined India's image internationally. It's time to make laws & punishments for rapists & molesters strict, criminals have no fear of nominal punishments for rape, this is the main reason that rape in our country is rampant. Please pass the bill for death punishment for rapists & life imprisonment for molesters, this is same happening in Madhya pradesh, please make it same throughout India & make India safe for woman. Woman are goddess for every Indian, don't let her suffer.
