GUWAHATI:

The Assam Mahila Congress president and MLA Nandita Das have expressed concern over the "alarming increase" of crime against women during the last few years under BJP government.

The state has reported "the highest rate of crime against women for the last three years consecutively" and the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) statistics reveal that it is constantly increasing.

Assam Pradesh Congress Committee General Secretary Bobbeeta Sharma highlighted incidents of rape and violence in the recent past.

Sharma said the fact that such cases are increasing, proves that the state government and its agencies have failed to instil fear among the perpetrators.

She added that the Congress in its manifesto for the forthcoming polls will include several measures for the protection of women, including a woman police battalion force and women cell in all police stations. (PTI)
