Cases of sexual harassment against India have obviously been rising on a regular basis. This time, in India, another disgusting incident of rape took place.
In the Vidisha district of Madhya Pradesh (MP), India, a 70-year-old woman was raped and murdered by a man. A 26-year-old man known as Surendra, is a common perpetrator. After his conviction, he admitted to the crime.
Surendra admits, according to the Times of India, that when he was under the influence of alcohol, he raped and murdered the older woman. The police said the man had in the past, also raped two other women.
A local police officer in the Vidisha district reported that two other women had been assaulted by Surendra over the last three years. The 65-year-old was one of them. He added that he is a habitual offender of Surendra.
Information about the shocking case
The accused was returning home from a nearby wine store, according to the Indian media, when he found that the elderly woman was alone. The woman used to sleep close to the farm to guard the crop of her kin. She stayed with her three sons, too.
The accused reportedly raped and tortured the 70-year-old woman during the early hours of Thursday. Allegedly, the accused crammed mud into the mouth of the senior citizen to gag her. His daughter-in-law went to the fields to see her dead body when the woman did not come home for tea.
After being informed, the police reached the spot and arrested the accused. The accused admitted that when he raped and murdered the woman, he was intoxicated.
Recurring sexual harassment cases in India
The rape of a 70-year-old woman in the MP is one of the many recurrent cases of rape in India. India witnessed an appalling one-of-a-kind rape case in 2012, when a 23-year-old in New Delhi lost her life. In India’s capital city, four men raped a child.
After being assaulted by her stepfather, a 10-year-old girl was impregnated in 2017. The incident occurred in Haryana’s Rohtak District, Punjab, India.
It seems like women will have to find safe refuge elsewhere, regardless of age, because the nation’s culture has fallen into a pit of inhumane acts, specifically sexual harassment.
