[Statement] Human Rights Watch has repeatedly criticized sexual violence in India

HRW reaction to Senator Sotto’s allegation on India rapes

Human Rights Watch has repeatedly criticized sexual violence in India, calling for an end to institutional barriers to justice, and has recommended reforming and training the police. We draw attention to human rights violations in over 90 countries including in the Philippines, where the spate of extrajudicial killings, apparently with the government’s blessing as it engages in a war on drugs, has however shocked people around the world, including in India
