According to the report, 83 women were killed, 39 women died suspiciously, 158 women were injured due to violence, 39 women were subjected to "harassment", 18 women were subjected to "sexual abuse" and 5 women were "raped" in the last 3 months.
The report added that 15.4 percent of sexual assault perpetrators are "friends", 7.7 percent "fathers" and 7.7 percent "partners".
The report said that 22.2 percent of those responsible for sexual assaults of children were their fathers, 16.7 percent their neighbors and 5.6 percent their teachers.
While 16.7 percent of the perpetrators were identified as spouses, 8.3 percent as colleagues and 4.2 percent as boyfriends in harassment cases, "colleague" ranks first with 20 percent in rape cases.
