Uber rape case aftermath: Delhi Police's 'hall of shame' of sexual offenders

Uber rape case aftermath: Delhi Police's 'hall of shame' of sexual offenders

New Delhi: Delhi Police has come up with a list of repeat sexual offenders – an initiative that could come in handy for those looking to check the background of a person they're looking to employ or as a general effort to name and shame sexual predators lurking in the capital.

The initiative has turned even more pertinent after the Uber cab rape case where the taxi company in question failed to check the antecedents of the alleged molester - Shiv Kumar Yadav - who had been named in such cases in the past as well.

The move to maintain a database of serial criminals has gained steam in the past few months with several states creating a log of repeat offenders.

Since the December 16 gang-rape case, the Delhi Police has been proactive in taking steps to curb crime against women and the move to maintain an online databse of sexual criminals convicted by courts is one such measure.

The database that currently has over 1,000 profiles of sexual offenders can be accessed at http://www.delhipolice.nic.in/sexualoffender.html.
