Did you know ......
Crime against a woman is committed every three minutes in India. A woman is raped every 29 minutes, a dowry death occurs every 77 minutes, and one case of cruelty committed by either the husband or relative of the husband occurs every nine minutes.
All these crimes occur despite the fact that women in India are legally protected from domestic abuse under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act.
