Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Oct 18: In the backdrop of mysterious incidents of braid chopping across the state, there has been a distinct rise in crime against women in Jammu and Kashmir during the last few years, but the government agencies have maintained a stoic silence on the vulnerability of women.
Over 100 cases of mysterious braid chopping have been reported from Kashmir so far which started on September 14. Earlier, such incidents were reported from Jammu region.
Several incidents of braid chopping are being reported from different parts of the valley on an average daily creating fear among the female population, but so far the government is clueless as to who is behind such incidents.
Official figures reveal that number of cases pertaining to crime against women in the state has shot up from 2087 in 2008 to 3363 in 2015.
2757 crimes against women like rape, attempt to rape, molestation, dowry abduction of women were reported in 2009, in 2010 (2521) and (3329) in 2011.
An official at J&K State Women's Commission said the commission too receives around 10 complaints of domestic violence every day. The official said most of the domestic violence cases came from Srinagar district.
Most often, cases of women harassment or domestic violence go unreported either due to remoteness of the location or victims choosing to stay silent out of fear or social stigma attached to such exploitation.
Police figures reveal that in most cases crimes against women, reasons are dowry, interference from in-laws, misunderstandings, giving birth to female babies leading to matrimonial disputes and family squabbles and are also subjected to mental as well as physical torture in homes, workplaces or in educational institutions.
The Ministry of Home Affairs in January 2015 had proposed to set up IUCAW in 20 per cent of the districts of each state on a 50:50 cost sharing basis between the Centre and state governments.
181 emergency helpline which was established in many states in India to actively respond to the women harassment cases is too waiting to be launched in Jammu and Kashmir.
In many states, the 181 service has been merged with state police helpline numbers to respond to the emergency calls through referral however in J&K, the government is yet to initiate the process.
A senior official of Social Welfare Department said the government has to take the decision for implementation of such facilities in the state.
