BANGALORE: Today, crime against women and children is a great concern to all of us. They are often the most targeted section of society in India. According to the report recently released by the Union Home Ministry, Uttar Pradesh has emerged as the most unsafe place for women as well as children.

According to the report entitled 'Crime In India - 2013' released by the National Crime Records Bureau, the rape cases in this state has considerably increased by more than 50 percent as compared to the previous year with report of 3050 rapes in 2013 as compared to 1963 rapes in 2012.

Earlier this year, there was shocking incident of a 16-year-old girl who was found hanging from a tree outside a village in Uttar Pradesh's Moradabad district. And, two minor girls who were gang-raped and murdered in Badaun district.

Soon after the Badaun incident, a senior police officer, speaking on behalf of the state government said, almost casually, that rapes happen at a rate of 10 per day in the state. He seemed to question, rather brazenly on why there was so much media glare on the Badaun incident or, for that matter, a series of rapes that happened thereafter in Azamgarh, Etawah and Aligarh. He also blamed the "lack of toilets" in the countryside for the rise in rapes and molestations.
