Getting Closer: President Clears Death Sentence For Rapists Of Children Under 12
December 27, 2019
The rising number of assaults, rape and murder of young children in India is cringe-worthy and gut-wrenching. People have been marching all over the country so a law is brought in where anyone found guilty of raping a child should be given a death sentence.
On Sunday, perhaps the pleas of people were heard as President Ram Nath Kovind promulgated the criminal law amendment ordinance, paving the way for providing stringent punishment, including death penalty, for those convicted of raping girls below the age of 12 years.
