Rapists Should be Lynched: Jaya Bachchan in RS


Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan on Monday said that rapists should be brought out in public and lynched. She said this amid a nationwide uproar over the gang-rape and murder of a 26-year-old veterinarian in Hyderabad.

She said that the accused in the rape cases should be named and shamed adding that these kinds of people should be brought out in public and lynched.

The charred remains of the 26-year old woman were found under a culvert on the outskirts of Hyderabad on Thursday morning.

The Samajwadi Party legislator also questioned the government on what they are doing to tackle the rise in crimes against women.

She further stated that it’s time that the government gives a proper answer on how they have tackled the rape cases. A similar incident happened in Hyderabad a day before the vet was raped, said Bachchan.

The Hyderabad case rocked both the Houses of Parliament on Monday with the lawmakers calling for stricter laws against crimes against women.

The Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, however, gave permission to discuss the matter after Question Hour.

The Upper House Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu, over the calls for a new law, said to tackle crimes against women a change of mindset is required and not a new bill.

He stated that what is required is not a new bill. What is required is political will, administrative skill, change of mindset and then go for the kill of the social evil.

Meanwhile, Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao also directed officials on Sunday to ensure that the Hyderabad rape-murder accused are tried in a fast track court. The four accused in the case were sent to 14-day judicial custody on Saturday.
