Violence Against Women
Chandigarh, Nov 10: Enough is enough, that is what women's groups across the country are saying as rape cases continue to rise in Haryana. The latest victims of rape are two minor girls in Haryana. Both the shocking incidents were reported in less than 24 hours. The rape incidents were reported from Hisar and Bhiwani.

Women's rights groups are asking as when the Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda's government is going act against the culprits? Hooda government has come under scanner as police have failed to provide safety and security measures to women.

"When I came home for vacations, four men followed me till my house. They came inside and tied my mouth and eyes," said the Hisar victim. Bhiwani victim said, "Two people came on the bike and took me. Then they said if I tell anyone they will kill me. There were three people who raped me."

In Bhiwani, a minor was abducted and raped for two days. Bhiwani victim's relative said, "We were going to bathe at around seven or eight in the evening. She had gone to the bathroom. There was boy standing there. He covered her mouth while the other had tied a cloth around her. The boys had taken her away on a motor cycle."

Relatives of 16-year-old victim, who was gangraped in Hisar's Dabra village, say that police tried to dilute the case. Dalbir Singh, victim's uncle, said, "The police didn't take any action. We called for a Panchayat. Nobody took any action."

On their part, the police say they are awaiting the result of their investigations. B Sathish Balan, SSP, Hisar, said, "We have started our probe into the matter. The police has detained 3 out of 4 men." DSP Karta Ram, said, "Case has been registered. Two people have been arrested in connection with the case."

In recent times, Haryana has witnessed an abnormal rise in rape cases. A total of 18 cases of rape were reported in Haryana in Sept-Oct. The gruesome incidents of violence against women have shocked everyone. Protests against the crimes were witnessed across the country. Many women's rights groups have demanded strictest of action against the perpetrators of the crimes. But unfortunately, at the ground level victims are leading lives under the shadow of fear.
