Every day 93 girls are raped and minimum 2 are killed after their rapes. In January 2019 many cases were reported in National Capital Delhi itself, where in girls were Raped and Murdered. This is a sad reality of our Country and it is a high time we must acknowledge it. The issue of Sexual violence should be the topmost priority of Government of India.”
