rape incidence

Myths about rape go back at least as far as ancient Greece: the story of Zeus taking the form of a swan to rape Leda has been depicted in countless artistic renderings, which usually depict Leda in a state of erotic compliancerapes are /were committed in INDIA at present and also during the past.LORD INDRA raped AHALYA w/o gauthama maharshi prior to RAMAYAN period..
Stories such as the Rape of Leda may be partially to blame for contemporary confusion about rape; this confusion has been perpetuated by misguided research and political initiatives.
The true jury conviction rate for rape is about 55% in the UK; the frequently quoted statistic that only about 6% of reported rapes result in conviction is actually an attrition rate similar to rates in other countries.
There is little evidence to support the commonly cited 2% rate of false rape allegations in the UK.
Evidence suggests that most female sexual assault complainants prefer to be examined by female forensic physicians, but gender is less important than professionalism and expertise.
A study has shown support for transferring sexual offence medical services from the police to the National Health Service.

UN Rape Statistics

This list[17] indicates the number of, and per capita cases of recorded rape. It does not include cases of rape which go unreported, or which are not recorded.[18] Nor does it specify whether recorded means reported, brought to trial, or convicted. Nor does it take the different definition of rape around the world into account.
