New Delhi – The shocking revelations made by India’s Union Minister Kiren Rijiju in 2018 in Rajya Sabha have surfaced the social media off late, where he claimed that over 1,10,333 rape cases were registered in India between 2014-2016.

Rijiju said in the higher house of parliament that 38,947 cases of rape were registered in 2016, 34,651 cases of rape were registered in 2015 and 36,735 cases of rape were registered in 2014.

The soaring figures are concerning—around 3,38,954 sexual crimes against women were registered in 2016, while 3,29,243 cases were registered in 2015, and 3,39,457 similar crimes were registered in 2014.

Despite stringent laws to curb the growing sexual offences against women, the crime doesn’t see any downfall.

Rijiju could present only the known and reported cases, while according to the National Crime Records Bureau report of 2006 – about 71% rape crimes go unreported.
