The EventOn December 30, 2011, Andhra Pradesh DGP Dinesh Reddy made a comment that sparked a nation-wide debate in India. Reddy remarked in a press conference in Hyderabad that the police could not be faulted for any rise in rape cases in Andhra Pradesh. He instead blamed women for provoking men with fashionable clothing: "[The rise in rape cases] cannot to be attributed to failure of the police. One of the factors (for rape cases) is that the accused are getting provoked as women are getting fashionable, even in rural areas. In villages more women are wearing fashionable clothing and if one studies the crime pattern... it is one of the factors provoking the accused (towards rape),"Dinesh went on to say that villagers from costal Andhra villages are now wearing salwar-kameez instead of the traditional saris, which was also contributed to the increase in rape cases.Although Reddy later claimed that his comments had been misinterpreted, stating that what he meant was that the provocative dress of women was only one factor contributing to the increase of rape that was out of the hands of the police, his statement prompted a powerful political and social backlash in India.
