The Asian Age - - Edit -

To­day’s pa­per car­ries two re­ports about cases of rape with mi­nors. A four- year- old girl was raped in Odisha while an­other, around nine years of age, was al­legedly raped and killed in Su­rat, Gu­jarat. Her body was found with 86 in­juries. These cases come close on the heels of Kathua rape case. Such beastly be­hav­iour by men is deeply dis­turb­ing. Union min­is­ter for women and child de­vel­op­ment Maneka Gandhi wants, and rightly so, the death penalty for rapists of mi­nors be­low 12 years of age. I feel the death penalty should be ap­pli­ca­ble in all cases of rape with mi­nors. M. C. Joshi Luc­know
