Protocol For Sexual Assault  

Sexual assault is a very commonly occurring scenario due to the increasing rate of violence in the society.

In some cases, the act of sexual violence gets reported, while in other cases it goes unnoticed as the victim does not wish to pursue the case. Unless a case is reported, there is no way of knowing that a sexual assault even occurred.

Unless the forensic evidence can prove a sexual assault, the case is not termed as one. The argument comes where the law has to draw a line between a sexual assault and intentional sex. Some women, who have sex under the influence of alcohol or even willingly, may later come around and complain of a sexual assault. That is why the forensic evidence is given a lot of importance in the case of sexual assault.
