Through over all study of all the crimes we should think over the situation to control over crimes. The universities are the platform of education, development and achieving higher goals in life, where the leader of future are formed. If such higher crimes occur in huge amount then what will be the future of world. It will be kind of threatening if we just think about this situation by writing acts and putting hands over it the time to take action based on law to completely eradicate these miseries from universities where thousands of life are destroying just in the fear of violence. Sexual harassments and molestation are brutal violence in which only girls are survivor but now day's boys are going to be harassed through sexual abuse.
