Even as Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday emphasised the need for stringent measures to stem the growing atrocities against women across various States, a widowed woman and a minor girl were raped in separate incidents in Haryana.

Reports said that the incident involving the minor girl took place in Panipat, while the other one happened in Ambala.

This takes the total number of rape cases in Haryana in the past one month to 13. No arrests were made till reports last came in.
