India and Bangladesh have the highest volume of internet searches for rape and incest sex, while the US tops in ‘child rape’ in 2016.

According to Google Trends, India and Bangladesh are the world leaders for Google searches of the terms “Gang rape,” “Bhabi sex,” and “forced sex,” while the United States tops the charts for searches related to “child rape”.

Contrary to the reports surfacing on the Internet earlier that suggested that Pakistan topped the list for highest number of searches in porn, the most searches for terms related to pornography actually originated from India and Bangladesh.

Google Trends reports show that the searches orignated from the cities of Guwahati, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, and Raipur rather than from major cosmopolitan cities such as Mumbai and Delhi.

India also tops the world in shocking search terms such as ‘baby rape’, apparently corresponding to increases in the number of reports related to rape cases and the rampancy of gang rape of minors.

Google Trends further showed that the US and India top the world in searches for underage rape and child rape.

It’s also pertinent to note that the cities and countries shown by the Google Trends are also the ones suffering from major increases in heinous rape cases. The Assamese city of Guwahati, for example, is noted for the huge increase in rape statistics in the recent past.

In 2013, an American news site published a controversial story about Assam’s ‘Rape Festival’, which was deleted following public outrage from Indian netizens.

The story, which was later billed as ‘satire’ quoted an organiser of the festival who said this was an ancient tradition of Assam where the man who raped the most women would get a trophy.

India has witnessed a dramatic increase in sexual violence in recent years, sparking outrage across the country as well as overseas. In 2012, a 23-year-old Delhi student was gang-raped on a moving bus and later died in hospital.
