Meanwhile, in India, sentences were strengthened in the wake of the death of a female college student in her twenties after being mass raped in a city bus in New Delhi in 2012, but sexual crimes are still widespread. According to the “crimes in India” released in March by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), the number of sexual assault cases counted by the Indian police in 2019 alone reached 32,033 cases. However, if the incidents that have not been reported to the police are added, the scale of the damage is likely to be greater.
