Not only that punishment must be stricter but the cse must be handed over to FAST TRACK court (IF NEED BE APPOINT SPECIAL ADDITIONAL JUDGES) and arrange closed door hearing - specially the girl should be protected from wide media exposure / should be handled carefully - with assitance from psychologist - to avoid undue torture to her.

Yes, it is the most heinous crime. Even worse than murder since the victim has to carry it throughout her life irrespective of the culprit being punished or not.

There is no STRICT punishment for rape.. it should only be DEATH by HANGING by the NECK. I don\'t think there can be anything more stricter than that.

Yes.The punishment for rape must be made stricter.Fast track courts must be set up and Capital punishment must be awarded to the culprit. Even stricter punishment must be given to those also who are directly or indindirectly found involved in facilitating this crime.

Rapist should be castrated in public and his eyes should be gouged out so that he can no longer see any women.He should be made to sit in a public square with a board hanging on him mentioning his crime and asking people to spit and urinate on him.

More than the punishment, it is fairness and speed of trail that needs to be improved.
