Another woman allegedly gangraped in Haryana, 20th case in five weeks
Haryana, hang your head in shame. Is this how you treat your women!
Just some other rapes…

Haryana’s Sarva Khap Jat Panchayat will now discuss the bizarre suggestion that the marriage age for girls be lowered to curb rising incidents of rape in the state. The supreme council is an umbrella body of khap panchayats across the state. Khaps have no legal sanction but often function like kangaroo courts and issue social diktats that are enforced in the villages.
So where is the Law of the Land?
