When a victim files a complaint, she has to explain all the details of the incident to the police. However, this report is not shared so when she talks to the lawyers or to the activist, she has to recount the incident several times, which adds to the psychological distress. If a system can be developed where the cases once reported can be shared among the police, doctors, activists and lawyers, it would help increase efficiency and also reduce the number of times a victim has to retell the incident. The system should be developed in such a way that anonymity where desired by the victim is maintained. Also, responsibility of maintaining the system should be given to such an organization that would not misuse or tamper with the information.
