Police sub-inspector Shaileja Sawant said if the victims are not coming forward to get the complaint registered, their acquaintance should approach police.
"Such victims need moral support. If the victim is not ready for the medical examination, doctors should convince her," said Sawant.
"While recording the statement of the victim, police ask various questions. The questions are not intended to embarrass the victim, but to ensure that proper complaint is registered so that would help in convicting the rapist," she added.
Corporator Seema Savale, also president of Jijai Mahila Pratishthan, said,"Only women police officers should record the statement of victims. There should be separate courts for such incidents. In rape cases, the verdict should be out in 90 days. Major changes should be made in the medical examination process and no bail should be granted to rapists."
