I am also concerned about the behavior of the policemen. I have been receiving a lot of complaints. During their training they haven't been trained how to behave with women.

Meanwhile, amid the row of rapes cases happening in Haryana, a senior police officer in Haryana stoked controversy through his comment that such incidents are "taking place since forever".
"It's part of society. Such incidents have been taking place since forever. Role of police is to probe, nab criminal and prove things. We're leaving no stone unturned to do that. We must work to stop such incidents from recurring," Additional Director General of Police RC Mishra was quoted as saying by news agency ANI on Wednesday.
Five cases of rape have been reported in the last five days from different parts of Haryana. A three-year-old daughter of a labourer was abducted and raped by a 14-year-old boy, her neighbour, on Tuesday in Hisar. The girl's private parts were found to be mutilated, the police said.
The accused was arrested by the police.
Last week, a 15-year-old was raped and murdered in Kurushetra and her body was later found mutilated, 100 km away in Jind.
An 11-year-old was also gang-raped in Panipat. According to the police, she was strangled to death and raped again after she died.
