Any enlightened person is aware that due to family prestige and dignity of women, most victims of sexual torture and/harassment are not reported in the police stations. Police administration and judiciary being controlled by the men handle the cases of the sexual atrocity victim women with biased attitude (patriarchal outlook)  and immediately form impression that women daring to open their mouths are not ordinary women rather they are either characterless or prostitutes. The victim women   normally get frustrated after the incidents, any cross questions by police or judge  with blunt questions/filthy notes like asking them (victim women)  to narrate the event ….how caught hold of her, how fastened her mouth and hands, how forcefully took her in a lonely place…….then what……  then what…..and finally what…..how many times… etc, increase the intensiveness  of her agony. Any such victim among the tribals (aboriginals) and the weaker sections normally remain unreported….
