It is utterly disgusting, shameless, and an indelible blotch on our country’s reputation! India has turned into a rape capital. Whether it is the blood curdling Nirbhaya case in 2012 or the recent Uber cab case, India has been leading in this shameless crime. Who is to be blamed? Each one of us! Right from the political system of India to the youth, the parents, the literate and illiterate category of India, each one of us is responsible for giving way to this heinous crime. Changing the perspective o girl child, her honour, inculcating moral values into a male child, and announcements for severe punishments to the culprit are some of the major things one must emphasise on.
It is sad but true that some of the cities in India are known for their highest crime rate! These cities are on high alert. Listed below are 5 strong contenders for rape capital of India:
What has happened to the capital city of India? One of the most toured, exquisite, jovial, and advanced cities of the country is now in news for the heinous rape incidents that increases each year.

Unfortunately, the city is facing a serious problem. Recently, the city has reported around 12 cases of rape, serious molestation, and sexual assaults and molestation against women. Here, the victims belonged to all age groups including minors. One of the most horrifying of these cases is that of a 6-year-old girl raped in school.
