Some rape statistics I shall share along with Dalit rapes that are ignored.
Recent stats quoting sources .
More than 32,500 cases of rape were registered with police in 2017, about 90 a day, according to the most recent govt data.
According to the NCRB data, 4,15,786 rape cases were reported across India between 2001 & 2017
On average, 67 women were raped every day across the country during these 17 years, or, in other words, about 3 women had been raped every hour.
While 16,075 cases of rape were reported in 2001 across India, this number rose drastically to 32,559 in 2017 - 103% increase .
