Mumbai's solution to violence against women: put them under curfew
In the aftermath of the brutal gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old student in New Delhi, Indian society has been mulling how to reduce crime, particularly sexual violence against women. In Mumbai, a city that has always enjoyed a reputation for being one of the most liberal places in India, police have come up with a solution that has left many women angry. Any young couples found outside after dark can now be fined 18 euros for not respecting a curfew.
