Patil, who was speaking in the Maharashtra legislative assembly, also added that the rise in atrocities against women is due to the obscene images used in advertisements.

He blamed the ‘decline of moral values’ for the increasing incidents of rape in the country. Patil has proposed a slew of measures to check the incidents of rape in Maharashtra.

RR Patil stated that maximum number of rapes took place in Uttar Pradesh, whereas the incidence of rape was much lower in the state.

The minister further said that the state will buy 500 vehicles to stop crime against women. These vehicles, which will have one woman officer each, will be procured in the next two months.

A special squad of 200 women commandos will also be appointed to curb chain-snatching. The government has also said that the victims will get a lawyer of their own choice.
