Rapes expose police failure: Human Rights Watch

New Delhi, April 21 : The brutal rape of a five-year-old girl here "has again exposed the failure of police training and reform in India", Human Rights Watch said Sunday.


"Enacting strong laws are simply a first step but it needs the government to focus urgently on implementation if it is serious about protecting children and other victims of sexual abuse," it said.

"The inadequate response of the police has become obvious in these recent cases from Bulandshahar, Aligarh and Delhi," added Human Right Watch's South Asia director Meenakshi Ganguly.

"Police and other officials (who) fail to do their jobs and instead engage in abusive behaviour should know they will be punished."
