Policemen: Most reports talk of further harassment at the hands of police officials who remain largely unmoved and handle these cases with the same amount of insensitivity that they handle all the other crimes, petty and big.
While Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde has talked so much over the issue of the gangrape in New Delhi, is he going to do anything concrete in the years to come to sensitize the police force, take action against policemen who talk downright chauvinistic nonsense and ensure that all rape cases move in a fast track manner?
Why do politicians who have charges of rape against them get elected? That’s something which the electorate has to answer.
