Delhi: The Rape Capital of India
IANS, Jul 2, 2004, 03.07pm IST


NEW DELHI: A woman is raped in the Indian capital every 24 hours and, in an overwhelming majority of cases registered by police in the last six months, the rapists were known to the victims.

These are among the startling findings of an extensive analysis of 2,359 rape cases registered by Delhi Police between early 1999 and June this year.

According to the study, till June 15 this year, 248 rapes were recorded in the city, marginally lower than the figures for the same period last year.

Police have solved 232 of the cases registered this year and arrested 330 men in connection with them, as some cases involved more than one attacker.

The analysis also threw up the fact that a majority of victims (89) and the accused (113) this year were illiterate.

The rapists were known to the victims in 238 rape cases registered this year. In only 10 cases, the victims did not know their attackers.

Details gathered from police stations across the city showed that in 121 cases this year, neighbours were the rapists.

The year 2003 witnessed the highest number of rapes in the period covered by the study, with police registering 490 cases. The previous high - 435 cases - had been recorded in 2000.
