According to media reports, a girl was assaulted and beaten up by several youths for rejecting a love proposal in Bangladesh.

In Dhaka’s Demra area, the girl was chased and attacked by youths in the afternoon when she left home to go and teach a student. Girl’s brother alleged a guy named Max Babu for assaulting her sister because she denied having a relationship with him. He claimed that three others also supported Babu in the act.

Police have arrested two suspects appearing to be involved in the crime.

India has launched a sex offender registry. The establishment of the database comes as the country is experiencing a daily wave of sexual crimes.

The information in the registry, however, will only be available to law enforcement officials. In contrast, in the United States, the public has access to information in sex offender registries.
