A total of 661 cases of rape have been reported in the Capital so far this year. Data maintained by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) shows as many as 45,603 people are in jails across the country on rape charges, of whom less than half (22,100) have been convicted.
An expert pointed out that most of the accused involved in sexual offences whom he had interacted with had a tendency to repeat the offence. “The tendency of sexual offenders to repeat such crimes is very high. In India, we do not have any inclusive scientific study on this subject to prove these claims. The small number of cases of repeat offenders cited by the police should be just taken as a data compiled for administrative reasons,” said Dr Nimesh Desai, Director, Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences (IHBAS).
In the US, the Justice Department puts out the name, photographs and details of people arrested for sexual offences in the public domain the moment they are out on bail so that people know about them.
However, Dharmendra Kumar, Special CP (Law and Order), admitted that India has no system where names and details of sexual offenders are sent out to the local police station level and tracked. “Till now we do not have such a system but we do have a record of people who are arrested repeatedly for certain crimes,” he said.
While admitting that there was no way to track these men, former Delhi police commissioner B K Gupta said the number of such offenders was very low. “The law is very strict for people who have been arrested for the second time for an offence like rape. The number of multiple offenders in rape cases is rare,” he said.
only islamic laws can stop the sex offenders that is to stone them by public in public.
Unless you make fast trial and no bail for sex offenders along with harsher punishment,this will go on happening.Biggest culprit in India is judiciary.People are afraid of complaining against judiciary because of contempt of court,but time has come to tell a spade a spade.
It is amazing that even after reports that people Tihar for rape crimes have been accused of raping women more than once. In spite of this Delhi's former Police Commissioner has the temerity to comment that number of multiple offenders is low. This goes to show that the Delhi police have head in the sand attitude so far as rapes crimes are concerned. These policemen should be shown the psychological trauma of rape. These police are very insensitive and should be pilloried for making such stupid statements.
That's the reason the main culprit of the now boiling Delhi rape case was so care free that he erased all the evidence from the bus and calmly parked it in place and advised co-accused to be care free nothing would happen to them. Surely he had previous experience where he would have easily got out of the noose!!
Like other countries there should be sex offender's registry on website & Police Stations. When a registered Sex Offender want's to live in certain area ( Or lives already) police have to notify neighbors up to certain area about him living there. Also weekly attendance at Police Station can help curtailing crime.
