A 14-year-old rape victim from West Bengal's Burdwan district committed suicide on Friday after the family of the accused put pressure on the girl and her parents to withdraw the complaint. 
The victim's body has been sent for post-mortem. The girl ended her life after facing severe pressure from the boy's family. In the suicide note she left in her note book, she said the parents of the 16-year-old accused put pressure on her to withdraw the case.
Burdwan police arrested the mother of the accused and three other family members. They were produced before the acting Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Anusha Lama on Sunday. Lama has sent two of the accused family members to judicial custody till 11 December while his mother and another member have been remanded in police custody for two days, according to the Deccan Chronicle.
The 16-year-old allegedly raped the girl on 30 September when she was alone at her home. Following the incident, an FIR was registered against the boy and he was sent to a juvenile home after his arrest. However, three weeks later he was released on bail.
Incidents of rape and sexual assault are on the rise in many parts of the nation. The heinous 2012 Delhi gangrape and murder case has not yet faded from the memory of the people of India, where such cases surface every now and then.
Delhi's brutal incident was followed by another similar incident from West Bengal's Barasat town. In June 2013, a 20-year-old college student was abducted, gangraped and murdered in Kamduni village, near the state capital Kolkata.
The second year BA student of Derozio College was raped by nine men inside a factory who then brutally murdered her by slitting her throat and ripping apart her body. Her mutilated body was later found in the fields near the factory.

Teenage Rape Victim Commits Suicide after Offender's Family Pressures her to Withdraw Complaint By Neha Singh 

Police in India's northern Haryana state have arrested three men after two female students registered a complaint of sexual harassment on a bus, an incident caught on tape and showing the women fighting back.
The three men were arrested on Sunday night for "eve-teasing" the women in Rohtak district when the two sisters, aged 22 and 19, were on their way home. The incident reportedly occurred last Friday.
"We have arrested three men. The main person involved is Kuldeep Singh. The other two involved are Mohit and Deepak. The three will be presented in court tomorrow and then will be taken into judicial custody," said police officer Gajendra Singh.
Al Jazeera's Karishma Vyas, reporting from New Delhi, reported that the young women say "they resorted to attacking the men after fellow passengers failed to intervene. Their actions are now attracting wide support on social media".
The women said the harassment continued on board the bus and explained how the incident escalated to the point where one of the men began hitting one of the women.
No other passengers on board appeared to help the women in the video.
'Awarded for bravery'
"Eve-teasing" is a common term used in India to describe public harassment of women. It can range from cat-calling on the street to molestation, threats that women and girls face on a daily basis in the country, especially when walking on the street and using public transport.
A politician of India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), OP Dhankar, said the girls were an inspiration to everyone and offered a cash reward to them.
"Every girl should show bravery done by the two girls. I respect their bravery. Both the girls will be awarded rupees 31,000 (nearly $498) each. The government will probe into the case," said Dhankar in Jhajjar district.
Indian laws prevent identification of alleged victims' names in any sexual harassment case.
In December 2012, the brutal gang-rape of a 23-year-old medical student in New Delhi caused national outrage with mass protests across the country for stringent rape laws and fast track courts to punish the perpetrators.

A 25-year-old Delhi-based girl was found unconscious with the police suspecting that she was raped and later thrown from a moving car near the Barla village on Delhi-Dehradun national highway.
The victim, a resident of Saleempuri in Delhi, was found in an unconscious state on the road near Barla village yesterday, they said.
Prima facie it seems that the girl was raped by some men and later thrown from a moving car, police said.
The girl has been admitted to a hospital, they said, adding statement of the victim will be taken once she regains consciousness.


AURANGABAD: Figures released by the Maharashtra Crime Investigation Department (CID) reflect that Aurangabad is an unsafe city for women, with crimes against women rising with each passing day. 

Compared to 2013, the number of cases of molestation registered at police stations in the city this year has considerably increased, while the number of rape cases has remained the same. 

The city police cited increasing public awareness and rising sensitivity of the police and administration towards crimes against women to be the reasons for the rise in the number of registered cases. 

While compiling the figures for molestation cases, the state CID found that in 2012, Aurangabad had witnessed as many as 77 cases of molestation, registered at its 13 police stations, between January and December. Compared to this figure, in 2013, the number surged to a whopping 170 cases, while in the first 10 months of 2014, the number has shot up to 198 cases. With the number of molestation cases registered in November not available yet and December yet to finish, the numbers are could be set to reach an all-time high this year. 

Twenty-two cases of rape were registered within the city limits in 2012; the number decreased to 21 in 2013, while this year, between January and October, 20 cases of rape have been registered. 

"People here are proud of the fact that Aurangabad is the industrial, educational, tourism and medical hub of Marathwada. Looking at the rising numbers of crime against women, I think it should be given an additional tag. The situation needs to be immediately addressed by senior police officials as well as the administration," women's activist Naseem Hilabi told TOI. 

Senior Aurangabad police officials said that the increase in the registration of cases of crime against women were directly proportional to increased awareness, especially after the Nirbhaya case. 

"Many cases of crime against of women were not registered earlier for two reasons: one, victims used to refrain from approaching the police, primarily fearing social stigma, and two, crime against women were treated like any other crime. The situation has changed to a large extent; any crime against women is dealt with much more sensitively," said Aurangabad police commissioner Rajender Singh. 

Singh said that earlier, petty acts of stalking and voyeurism were not covered under any act of law. With amendments post the Nirbhaya incident, these acts now fall under legal purview. 

While the police justified increasing awareness for the rise in the cases, activists have questioned corrective measures being taken by the city police to curb crime against women. "In addition to acting against the crime, the police have to work on the corrective measures. There is an immense need of the police to investigate cases thoroughly and file the chargesheets within the set deadline. This will change things to a great extent," said Nihal Singh Rathod, a lawyer associated with Human Rights Law Network practising at the Bombay High Court.
