The rapes of men in Indian cities by men from South Asian countries has gone mainstream in recent months.
The rapes of Indian boys by South Asian men in the past decade have prompted protests, legal action and international outrage.
“It is not surprising that we have seen this.
It is something we have come to expect in our society,” said P.V. Kannan, a former chief minister of Gujarat state.
There has been a spate of rapes in the last few months in the northeastern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, a key battleground in the national election this year.
In the southern state of Karnataka, a man was arrested in September after allegedly raping a 16-year-old girl at a hotel.
Indian men have been raping girls at the same time in the capital city of Delhi, in a spate that began last month.
On Monday, police arrested a man on suspicion of raping a woman in a park in the city’s main railway station, a crime that has also been reported in the northern state of Bihar.
Police are investigating the rapes in several Indian cities, including Delhi, where more than 30 women have accused their attackers of raping them.
Police have recorded more than 1,000 rape complaints in Delhi so far this year, up from 600 in 2016.
More than 70,000 women and girls have been raped in India in recent years, according to a 2015 UN report.
Rape is one of India’s most common crimes, but it is a crime against humanity that has been under-reported, often by governments and police forces that fear the repercussions of the backlash against the Indian Muslim community.
The International Campaign for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination says there are about 7,000 such cases of rape in India each year.
It says at least 50,000 people are being forcibly displaced every year due to caste and religion-based violence.
The campaign, which is funded by the United Nations and the U.S. government, has urged India to stop the rape epidemic.
Its president, K.
Sivakumar, says the country’s response to the problem has been inadequate.
Sibha Bhagwat, executive director of the Campaign, said many Indians still think of rape as an isolated incident.
