Since there is no provision in laws to summarily hang the rapists, the demand for this punishment in both houses and by public is just for sympathy or public consumption i feel. arre we r just not able to hang terrorists who kill so many ppl, how can our gutless govt. hang rapists?
It is not possible to summarily hand anybody, not even rapists. This is just show to impress the people. Now that people have started watching the proceedings live, they dramatise the things to impress and attract voters.
The problem is that even if the police are very efficient, due to political interference, police are not able to do their investigative work as per rules, in most of the cases.
Almost in every case, politician will meddle and the criminals know that they will be able to escape punishment with the blessings of many politicians some of whom are themselves known criminals.

Nothing but drama by politicians. If they are really serious, they will not wait to tell this each time an incident of rape takes place. They forget their own words, the very next day of uttering it. This type of incidents have been happening in our holy capital city for years. We the public are helplessly talking about this shameful events referring it as happening in capital city where bounty of police force and military men are guarding (whom I don't know). Probably, they are guarding the selected few who are shouting as representatives of people. According to me, it is not a great task to ensure security to the public. Just make Police Commissioner responsible and accountable for peace keeping. Now when a Police Commissioner comes out with an excuse like shortage of police force, deployment of force to the VIPs etc for his failure to ensure security, our poor administrators who rarely have experience of managing affairs, simply accept the explanation and forget of the great events
