Who said India was the country of the wise, Indians were peaceful people ? Every hour, 25 violent crimes take place in the whole country while 59 housewives commit suicide every day. And two accidental deaths occur every two minutes across the country.
The violent crimes include two rapes, four murders, ten culpable homicides and one dowry death on an hourly basis. A snapshot of the other heinous crimes is also an eye-opener : 17 crimes are committed against a woman every hour, 3 kidnappings and abductions and 5 crimes are carried out against an untouchable or a tribal person, hourly.
