Culture of impunity fueling rise in rape incidents

Various human rights and socio-cultural organisations believe it is a culture of impunity that has lead to a recurrence in violent incidents including sexual harassment and rape in the country.

At least 1,413 women have been either gang-raped or raped in the last year alone, according to Ain O Salish Kendra, a human-rights organisation.

The alarming numbers have raised questions of safety and well-being of women in the country.

The Star Live video explores some of this data and its implications.
