Why can't the courts award death penalty in such horrible cases?It is a big shame to the beautiful town of Pollachi. One of India's most beautiful towns that has been featured in so many Hindi movies as well.
In an earlier thread, I had pointed out this atrocity committed by four heartless youth. Three were arrested but the fourth rascal, with political connections has been arrested too. A video is now on in social media, with a pathetic victim pleading with one rascal to allow her to wear her clothes. She is mercilessly beaten. The entire public of the town is up in arms. The political parties have started their agitations.
Since the four rascals have spoiled the life of over 200 girls and even married women, why not sentence them to death? In a particular Tamil movie, the hero will simply murder the rascal who committed the rape and suspend the dead body from a bridge. Though this was just a movie scene, there are flashes of that on social media, suggesting that the rascals need to be given that sort of punishment.
While that may never work out, why not death penalty?
