The Rajasthan High Court last week referred to the term Rapisthan while slamming the police for their laxity in handling gangrape cases.
When the Bhanwari Devi case came up we read someone calling Rajasthan Rapisthan. We hope that Rajasthan actually does not become Rapisthan, Justice R S Chauhan said from his single-judge bench.
He noted that more than 10 cases had not been investigated properly and promptly. Some sensibility should be shown in such cases and it is owing to the approach of the police that this country ends up producing bandit queens.
The court directed the Sikar SP to arrest the four men accused of raping a girl in 2011.
