Sexual harassment claims filed by men

Interesting trend watch by i4cp:

-Sexual harassment claims by men have risen from 11.6% in 1997 to 15.4% in 2007
-This harassment comes from both men and woman; from other men, it's not necessarily homosexual intent, but rather men putting other men down "who fail to conform to masculinity norms"
-The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition suggests expanding to "Gender harassment" and other terms to be more inclusive.

I wonder what the corresponding figures would be for India?
