However, after seeing the number of the case being reported during the lockdown it seems that only petty crime such as theft, robbery has decreased whereas rape, domestic violence is still being reported.
Lately, a news was reported, where a group of miscreants tried to rape two nurses who were on their way to the hospital in Assam. However, in the meantime, they escaped and reached the hospital and narrated the ordeal to the staff. On hearing this, hospital staff and residents got hold of one of the miscreants and then handed him to police.
Well, this is not the first time when these miscreants tried to assault them, earlier also it happened however the nurses were afraid to complaint.
