India has a sad history of sexual violence. Some 19,000 attacks on minors were reported in 2016.

But activists say that a large number of them never get the attention of the police because of the social stigma associated with sexual crimes.

In January, an eight-year-old girl died after being kidnapped, drugged and gang raped for days in northern Jammu and Kashmir.

The case led to the introduction of the death penalty for those convicted of raping girls under 12 years of age.
