Violence against 4,896 females in 2016
As many as 4,896 women and girls were subjected to multiple forms of torture throughout 2016, a women’s rights group has said on Sunday. According to Bangladesh Mohila Parishad statistics, the number of women raped rose alarmingly in 2016 – with 1,050 women and girls raped in total including 166 gang rape victims and 44 killed after being raped. The number of gang rapes was 199 in 2015. The organisation revealed the statistics at a press conference – at its office in Shegunbagicha – focused on the issue of violence against women prevailing in Bangladesh. According to the report – based on information from 14 dailies – by Bangladesh Mahila Parishad (BMP), there were 165 rape attempts on women in 2016. This number was 142 in 2015. 120 women were molested, and 80 became victims of sexual harassment in 2016. The report implies that 2016 was the worst for women in the last four years in terms of several forms of violence.
