In past few years, rape cases in Pakistan have reportedly increased. Rape incidents are mostly happening in Punjab and Sindh. Last year 14,850 individuals were kidnapped in these areas and of those, 80 percent were raped. In 2014, the rape cases were much more than those in 2013. Mostly the rape victims were of ages 11 to 15. The police have failed to take matters into their hands. I request the government to take serious action and put the criminals to justice
