The Asian Age - - Nation - RABINDRA NATH CHOUDHURY

Ch­hat­tis­garh chief min­is­ter Ra­man Singh was in strong favour of giv­ing cap­i­tal pun­ish­ment to rapists of girls aged be­low 12 years of age.

Talk­ing the lo­cal me­dia, Mr Singh said death penalty for the rapists of mi­nors would serve as a strong de­ter­rent to save the girl chil­dren from the per­verted sex preda­tors. “I am strongly in favour of award­ing death sen­tence to the rapists of girls aged be­low 12 years of age,” he said.

In a re­lated de­vel­op­ment, the Ch­hat­tis­garh state women’s com­mis­sion rec­om­mended the state to amend law to make pro­vi­sion of cap­i­tal pun­ish­ment to the rapists of mi­nor girls.
