Congress MLA from Rajasthan's Sujangarh, Master Bhanwarlal Meghwal, has said that courts in India should punish rapists publicly and also consider measures like cutting their genitals.
"The perpetrators of such rotten crimes like rape should be hanged in public," he added. "The court should... punish the accused in rape-related cases in a maximum of three months," Meghwal further said.
Master Bhanwar Lal Meghwal also said that governments and courts in India should think about punishing the culprits publicly.
Talking to the media after a public hearing at the state Congress headquarters on Thursday, Meghwal said that they should give quick and harsher punishments for crimes like rape.
"Before the TV and Internet started dominating our lives, we never used to have these gruesome crimes. The perpetrators of such rotten crimes like rape should get hanged in public. The court should decide and punish the accused in rape-related cases in a maximum of three months. There is a provision for hanging the perpetrators in public and cutting their genitals in many countries and I think we should also make the laws much tougher in our country", he added.
In both houses of Parliament, it is being demanded by the opposition that stringent laws should enact in this regard.
