Any idea if these cases are reported in the majority from a particular State or Socio-Economic strata? Is judicial and legislative protection enough?

According to a 2018 National Family Health Survey, more than 80% of the married women have experienced sexual violence and have named their current spouse as the perpetrator. As marital rape is not considered a criminal offense in India, so no official NCBI records are there about different states and strata.
