Shimla, July 10

There has been an increase in sexual offences involving fast relations in Himachal Pradesh. The variety of rape instances has risen by 7.17 per cent, kidnapping/abduction by 9.68 per cent and molestation by 4.67 per cent, as per the police knowledge (compound annual progress fee in 10 years).

A person in Una has been booked for raping his daughter, a father in Kangra for sexually exploiting his daughter and a resident of Shimla district for raping his granddaughter. In Mandi, a rape accused on bail has been booked for threatening the sufferer. All these instances have been reported up to now one week. Also, there have been instances of faux Facebook accounts being made and vulgar photos of younger ladies uploaded. The police have begun crime-mapping to curb all such crime. DGP Sanjay Kundu, in a letter to the Additional Chief Secretary, Social Justice, has careworn the “urgent need” to launch an consciousness marketing campaign towards such crime.
