According to the figures released by the government, 15 cases of rape, 25 cases of molestation, 15 cases of kidnapping, 16 cases of cruelty by husband, 2 cases of dowry torture are being registered every day in Madhya Pradesh. It is one of the highest numbers of cases against women in the country. There can be many reasons for the increase in crimes against women in the state. Like the helpless law system, the weak judiciary and the government's failure. One such case has arisen in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. PVD Minister in Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s cabinet Rampal Singh's daughter in law, Preeti had committed suicide last Saturday. Preeti had married to Rampal's younger son, Girijesh, which was a love marriage. It is alleged that Minister Rampal and his wife had refused to accept Preeti as her daughter-in-law and had fixed the marriage of her son, Girijesh elsewhere. Out of choices, Preeti succumbed to Suicide. Priti's family has alleged that the state government is pressurising the police administration. There are many such cases in which the accused are released due to political pressure. Congress state president Arun Yadav and Ajay Singh met the victim's family and tried to raise the issue in the assembly, but were denied by speaker Sitasharan Sharma, who did not grant permission to discuss the issue. After which the assembly session was adjourned indefinitely due to the ruckus. Ruling BJP government have its own excuses & solution for the increase in rape cases in the state. BJP spoke person and leaders have a traditional excuse that the rape cases are more because the FIR is registered are easily in the state. While BJP MLA from Guna, Pannalal Shakya came up with a new reason saying 'Crime against women were rising in the state because 'girls kept boyfriend'. Girls should refrain from having boyfriends and atrocities against them will end'
