Rajasthan DGP blames ‘internet’ and ‘curiosity’ in youth for rising rape cases in the country, Congress-ruled state tops the list

The Rajasthan DGP has alleged that there is an increase in the number of cases where young boys and girls have 'friendship' and often 'flee' together. Yadav further added that the youth, especially the girls, need to be taught about confidence-building and 'ways to avoid' such incidents.

Recently, the Rajasthan Director General of Police (DGP) Bhupendra Yadav has stirred a controversy by blaming the ‘internet and curiosity’ in youths for the rising rape cases in the country. His comments come at the backdrop of several rape cases that have been come to light in the past few days.

Yadav stated, “I have observed an increase in the number of rape cases in North India. There are special reasons behind it such as a rising population of the young generation, unemployment and imitating pornographic activities available on the internet.” He also claimed that since the law does not permit individuals below 18 years to have a physical relationship, it, therefore, invokes curiosity among the youth and thus resulting in rapes.
