Surely not? Why do you say that? It was well reported that police in India made it very difficult to register rape complaints, and would stone-wall victims attempts to do so.

Before the December gang-rape, Mishra said, Delhi police had a policy in many instances of investigating incidents before registering a formal case, leading to complaints by women that authorities were turning a blind eye to sex crimes.
But now "the instruction is clear -- every crime incident should be recorded", said Mishra.
And I'm sure you're going to give us stats on that spiked drinks and date rape "fact", and it isn't just an off the cuff opinion, right?
1. Not reporting a rape exacerbates the issue. The whole idea of making so much noise about the Delhi rape was to generate enough intensity to make it a national issue and spread awareness.
whether reporting such an issue culminates in conviction and sentence of the rapists or not is another matter.
2. did you even look at that link I posted properly or not?
7.2% of the rapes occurred in a party
2.2% of rapes happened in a bar

Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse, which is initiated by one or more persons against another person without that personââ‚¬™s consent. A person who commits an act of rape is known as a rapist. The act may be carried out by physical force, coercion, abuse of authority or with a person who is incapable of valid consent. Victims of rape can be severely traumatized by the assault and may have difficulty functioning as well as they had been used to prior to the assault, with disruption of concentration, sleeping patterns and eating habits.
