We have a  lot of  cases of  molestations & rape  by army & CRPF personnel in North Eastern Region. Surprisingly this is not viewed in other parts of India. Normally criminals are into this heinous crime. So is there a  problem with the mentality of  the army and CRPF towards North Eastern Women that they think they can prey on them whenever they want. Is that none in  social activitivist group, national media , bollywood actors who have been vocal for the delhi rape case now is aware of  it.
