Delhi Commission for Women chairperson Swati Maliwal said rape has turned into “an epidemic”. Maliwal blamed the Centre for failing to hold high-level meetings on women’s safety that the commission had been urging it to hold for months. “Nothing has changed in Delhi in the last four years. We have been asking the Centre to set up a high-level committee, including Rajnath Singhji, Arvind Kejriwalji, the L-G and the Police Commissioner, and it should meet at least twice a month,” Maliwal said.

“Our requests have fallen on deaf ears. We have taken it to the court. It reflects what is wrong with the society and the system,” Maliwal told The Indian Express.
