In more than 90 percent of the cases, the perpetrators were known to the victim. "This is unacceptable", she told ANI.
Haryana police-perhaps wanting to avoid a repeat of the criticism that plagued their Delhi colleagues following their slow response to the 2012 Delhi gang rape-have been quick to make arrests. But nothing seems to have changed in men's psyche: they seem unable to accept that women have equal rights. "They should not spare the culprits and deal with them strictly", she added. Such is the brutality of their actions that Twitter is already calling her "Haryana's Nirbhaya". I am beside this family.
Abortion is not allowed to take place after 20 weeks in India, except in cases where the pregnancy is deemed a risk to the mother's life.
He said a case has been registered under the arrested accused under Sections 376 (rape), 365 (kidnapping or abducting with intent secretly and wrongfully to confine person) and 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) in this regard. Additionally, the Haryana government announced financial assistance of Rs.10.5 lakh [$163,793] for the victim's family. State welfare department will provide Rs 8.5 lakh while Red Cross Society announced support of Rs 2 lakh. This infuriated him and he killed her, police say.
When the police found the dead body, it was decomposed and mutilated.
A 23-year-old woman was brutally gang-raped and murdered earlier last week.
Shenvi said during investigations, involvement of only two people had come to fore and both have been arrested.
The victim, said to be a divorcee, had been abducted from Sonipat on May 9 and taken to Rohtak in a auto, police said.
The incident allegedly occurred on May 9 but the body was recovered much later from Rohtak's IMT area.
A heated argument broke out which resulted in the woman slapping him. "We thought at least this will deter men, but unfortunately, even today, girls are not safe and men are not scared", she said.
He said as the victim belonged to Dalit community, the accused had also been booked under the provisions of the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
A forensic team later confirmed that the victim was gang-raped and mutilated with sharp-edged weapons.
Still, in 2015, Indian authorities censored a 2015 BBC documentary discussing the gang rape, India's Daughter citing "an worldwide conspiracy to defame" the country. The pregnancy was suspected by her mother, who works as a maid, and she took her to see a doctor. In Kolkata, a 75-year-old woman was reportedly raped in her home by a neighbor late on Friday night.
Her attackers then crushed her with a vehicle in a bid to hide her identity, according to local reports.
