MP first state to push for a death penalty for rape of girls up to 12 years old.We had a GD on atrocities, many focused on sexual assault on women and children. Now, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, CM Madhya Pradesh allayed fears of misuse and the bill was passed unanimously and sent to the President to make it a law. If passed, any preparator of raping a girl 12 years and below may be awarded death penalty or life imprisonment. Even punishments for stalking and other abuses against women have been made stringent.
Many members felt we should have stringent measures against the crime rather than wanting the victim to speak out. Should such laws be passed in other states, to at least make these in-humans think twice before venturing to commit such crimes?
