Rape is a heinous crime that has been plaguing India for decades. According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), a total of 32,032 rape cases were reported in India in 2019, 33,356 in 2018, and 32,559 in 2017. The number of reported rape cases in India has been steadily increasing over the years, with 38,947 cases reported in 2016.

The statistics on rape cases in India are even more alarming when we consider the number of girls and women who are affected. According to the NCRB, in 2019, out of the 32,032 rape cases reported, 28,536 were committed against girls and women. This means that nearly 90% of the rape cases reported in India in 2019 were committed against girls and women.

The number of reported rape cases against girls and women in India is even higher when we consider the number of cases that go unreported. According to a report by the United Nations, it is estimated that only one in four rape cases in India are reported. This means that the actual number of rape cases against girls and women in India is likely to be much higher than the reported figures.

The issue of rape in India is further compounded by the fact that the perpetrators of these crimes often go unpunished. According to the NCRB, in 2019, out of the 28,536 rape cases reported against girls and women, only 4,054 were charge-sheeted. This means that only 14% of the reported rape cases in India in 2019 were charge-sheeted.

The situation is even worse when we consider the number of convictions in rape cases. According to the NCRB, in 2019, out of the 4,054 rape cases that were charge-sheeted, only 2,102 resulted in convictions. This means that only 52% of the rape cases that were charge-sheeted in India in 2019 resulted in convictions.

The statistics on rape cases in India are a stark reminder of the need for greater awareness and stricter laws to protect girls and women from sexual violence. It is also important to ensure that the perpetrators of these crimes are brought to justice and that the victims receive the support and justice they deserve.
