No one-stop women who have suffered sexual violence despite in Delhi every day

At least six women are raped every day in the national Capital, but there is not a single one-stop centre in Delhi that a sexual violence survivor can approach for legal and mental assistance.

The Ministry of Women and Child development's initial plans of opening up “one-stop centres” to provide a sanctuary to women who have suffered sexual violence along with mental counselling, legal assistance and rehabilitation have hit a roadblock.

The proposal for this was made following after the Nirbhaya rape in December 2012 and much publicised in media and public domain. Worse, the national Capital under the AAP-led government has proved to be a spoiler for such women in distress.

"We have not received any proposal for setting up any Sakhi centre from Delhi Commission for Women so far," confirmed WCD (Women's Ministry Directors) ministry's spokesperson.

 

According to the WCD ministry officials, 1,143 women were assisted in 83 one-stop centres across the country, barring Delhi within a year of its inception.

The one-stop centre has come forward to rescue of several women who have been exploited and abused in their marital life, 15-year-old abandoned girl child, elderly women sexually assaulted by a minor among many cases.
