Increasing number of rape in the country

Rape has tolled up in Bangladesh in the last quarter of the current year. About 187 women are raped and 19 women are killed after rape within this short term. Human Rights based organisation Ain o Salish Kendra (ASK) has published this data on their report yesterday.

A number of 38 gang rapes occurred in the last quarter.

ASK has also documented that a total of 130 cases were filed over the rape incidents across the country while no legal measures were undertaken for 78 of the events.

Many women have faced sexual harassment within this time.

Legal force of the country should be concerned and take action to bring justice for the victims.
