The December 16 Delhi rape case has brought about some changes, but not all are positive. The Punjab police have found at least 10 rape cases, of the 63 lodged in December, to be false.

This, however, came to light when, following the Delhi case, stern guidelines were issued to ensure prompt response in gender-related offences.

"Revenge was the main motive in these cases," Jasminder Singh, ADGP said in Chandigarh on Wednesday.

"But this doesn't mean that we are going to take rape complaints lightly," he added.

In Haryana's Kaithal, the SP office received a complaint on Monday by eight girls accusing the management of the private college of 'sexual harassment'.

Upon probe, the complaint was found to be false.
