Sexual Offence Unabated
It is so scary that many innocent girls and women are falling victim to sexual violence amid the pandemic. Coronavirus is successful in limiting numerous things, but it barely had an impact on sexual violence. There are plenty of reports that shed light on the growing number of rapes taking place across the nation. What is even worse is that many of the victims are minors. At a time when most of humanity is taking a blow from Covid-19, how can these perpetrators commit such atrocities?
Apart from the rapes, domestic violence is also on the rise as many women are being tortured mentally and physically amidst the lockdown. It seems that our existing laws are not helping prevent such abuse. The authorities need to take stringent measures if we are to reduce the rate of violence against women.
