Summary
Public protests in India after the December 2012 gang rape and death of Jyoti Singh Pandey, a student in Delhi, spurred legal and other reforms. However, despite stronger laws and new policies, rape survivors in the country face significant barriers to justice and critical support services such as health care, counseling, and legal aid. This report documents the humiliating treatment women and girls who survive rape and other sexual violence still too often suffer at police stations and hospitals. Human Rights Watch calls on the Indian government to strictly enforce existing laws and implement programs to assist survivors of sexual violence, and to ensure that police officers, judicial officials, and medical professionals receive regular training in appropriately responding to such cases
