Anik Islam, Arifa Akter and Bayzid Ashik Hossain

Domestic violence is a silent crisis in the developing and underdeveloped countries, though developed countries also remain drowned in the curse of it. In developed countries, victims can easily report and ask help on the contrary in developing and underdeveloped countries victims hardly report the crimes and when it is noticed by the authority it becomes too late to save or support the victim. If this kind of problems can be identified at the very beginning of the event and proper actions can be taken, it will not only help the victim but also reduce the domestic violence crimes. This paper proposed a smart system which can extract victim situation and provide help according to it. Among of the developing and underdeveloped countries Bangladesh has been chosen though the rate of reporting of domestic violence is low, the extreme report collected by authorities is too high. Case studies collected by different NGOs relating to domestic violence have been studied and applied to extract possible condition for the victims.
