Nirbhaya Gang rape : After 5 years , has the street become safer for women
Five years ago, on December 16, 2012, the gang rape of Jyoti Singh or 'Nirbhaya' as the national calls her in a tribute to her spirit, shook the entire nation with its sheer brutality. A 23-year old Jyoti was violated in the most unimaginable, horrifying way possible by 6 men, including one juvenile in a bus, her entrails were pulled out and she along with her injured companion was left to die in the chilling cold of the national capital. From 2013 to 2017, Delhi - the National Capital - the Delhi police data showed a figure of 10,124 rape cases. 2017 itself recorded a figure of 1968 till November 30. The NCRB data clearly pointed out that the National Capital is no place for women recording highest number of crimes against women.
