Rape is the fastest growing crime in India, but still remains under-reported. Of all the major crimes, the incidences of rape have witnessed the highest growth in the country in the last few decades.
The current situation demands women to take a stand for themselves if they want to feel safe in this society. Seenu Kumari is one of those women who has taken the matter into her own hand. Putting a strong foot forward, Seenu has developed a ‘Rape Proof Underwear’ that is capable of saving a woman from getting raped.
Seenu’s rape proof underwear comes with a video camera, GPS, and a lock that opens with a password. As reported by Daily Mail, Seenu Kumari, a resident of Uttar Pradesh has developed the prototype and claims that the underwear is knife and bulletproof. She also says that it has emergency call feature as well as a combination lock.
There is no doubt saying that Uttar Pradesh is of the states in India where rape toll is really high and a girl coming from the same state with a measure to prevent rape is a huge achievement. Seena hopes that her invention will be in the wider market one day.
The GPS in the underwear will inform the family as well as the police of the possible attack. Also, the video camera will help to track the attacker later on.
Here’s the video in which Seenu has explained the working of the ‘rape proof underwear’.
Seenu’s rape proof underwear has been sent to the National Innovation Foundation in Allahabad for patent approval. S
She hopes that it will help women and protect them from getting raped. It is one of the biggest inventions by an Indian woman but at the same time, it is disappointing as women themselves have to take steps to protect themselves because men will not stop raping!
