NUMBER OF INDIAN DELHI RAPES REPORTED INCREASE BY ONE THIRD IN 2014

NEW DELHI, India -  The number of rapes reported in New Delhi increased by nearly a third in the last year, police said on Friday, highlighting the alarming levels of sexual violence against women in the Indian capital.
At an annual briefing with reporters, Delhi Police Commissioner Bhim Sain Bassi said that a total of 2,069 rape cases were reported in New Delhi in the 12 months leading up to December 15, against 1,571 reported the previous year, an increase of 31.6 per cent.
The city sealed its reputation as India’s “rape capital” two years ago when a medical student died after being gang-raped on a moving bus, prompting mass protests and triggering a series of policing and legal reforms.
The figures were released the same day that an Uber taxi driver accused of raping a female passenger in Delhi last month made his second appearance in court.
Shiv Kumar Yadav, 32, was remanded in custody for another three days over the alleged December 5 attack.
But the police commissioner insisted the new figures did not necessarily indicate that the city was becoming more dangerous for women but rather highlighted a growing willingness of victims to come forward.
Bassi said that police received another 36,284 complaints on other issues at women’s help desks in the city’s police stations, which have mostly been established in the recent years.
The policemen are supposed to protect the women from the rapists, however last Thursday, the two constables allegedly abducted the girl from her village, according to a complaint filed by the girl’s mother. 
Two policemen are accused of raping a 14-year-old girl  were on the run on Friday, a police official said.
“She said the men took her daughter to the police station in a car and raped her in a room in the station premises,” Superintendent Lallan Singh said.
“The two men are absconding and a search is on for them,"
They have been suspended and if found guilty will be punished according to the law,” Singh said.
The incident happend in the town of Musajhag, Badaun district, in Uttar Pradesh state.
