It’s getting scary as days progress and still, there are no guaranteed signs of safety for the girls and women these days.

It was on July 30, a hospital notified the Delhi Police regarding the rape of a 16-year-old girl. Meanwhile, the girl’s medical examination disclosed that she was pregnant. The cops also recorded the statement of the teenage girl. Earlier, she didn’t file a complaint against the rape accused. However, she later decided to lodge a formal complaint against the culprit.
