A nine-year-old girl was also raped and murdered in north Kashmir's Uri town in the previous year allegedly by her family.
An official of police department said that many crimes go unreported in the Valley either due to remoteness of the location or victims choose to stay silent out of fear or social stigma attached to the crime.
"There are crimes like rape, molestation, and eve-teasing where the victims many a times prefer to remain silent," the official said
The figures reveal that police has registered 667 women kidnapping cases in the previous year. At least 417 have been disposed off while 250 cases are still under investigation. Similarly, 35 eve-teasing cases have been registered, of which five are still under investigation. The police has registered 143 domestic assault cases, 54 are still under the investigation.

"Very little percentage of crimes against women goes reported as women mostly prefer to remain silent without lodging compliant against their family members. Women also face harassment outside their homes be at workplaces or in educational institutions," the police official said.
