Rapists To Get Hanged
The tremendous outrage and public anger on Delhi rape incident took the arrogant Union Govt bull by horns as the cabinet cleared notification to hang rapists in extreme brutal incidents which results in death or leave the victim paralysed or lead them into coma.
The Govt ordinance however rejected recommendations of Justice Verma panel which asked for sexual assault in marriage as marital rape. The ordinance defines gang-rape and entails a provision for a minimum 20 years’ imprisonment for rape and, in case of rape or gang-rape with grievous hurt, the sentence would extend up to the convict’s natural life. The new law includes acid attack as an offence under Section 354, which deals with sexual assault, and will carry a minimum punishment of 10 years which may go up to life.
