Panaji: Minister for Ports Michael Lobo today demanded that Parliament should amend the Indian Penal Code (IPC) to make capital punishment with public hanging compulsory, for rape with murder accused in the country.
He said that taking cognizance of growing crime against women, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah should make necessary amendments to IPC in the Parliament to make capital punishment with public hanging compulsory for accused involved in rape and murder cases.
He further said that amendment should also be done to set up fast track court to ensure that the justice to the victim is delivered within four months of the crime being reported.
“Such accused needs to be hanged publicly. A strong message has to go across all the men in India, who think law will not do anything and that they are beyond law,” Lobo stated.
“These men are not normal men. They feel that whatever they do will go unchecked…unnoticed or someone will support them and they will come out. But that should not happen,” he added.
