We should ask for death penalty for child rapists: Maneka Gandhi

Chandauli (Uttar Pradesh), Apr 13 (ANI): Union Cabinet Minister for Women and Child Development, Maneka Gandhi on Friday said, "We should ask for death penalty for child rapists involved in cases of children under the age 12." Speaking on Kathua and Unnao rape cases, Gandhi said decision cannot be made in two minutes. "Aap log (media) chaahte hain ki 2 minute mein karyavahi ho jaye, action is being taken by state governments," she said.

An eight-year-old Muslim nomadic girl was allegedly abducted, drugged, raped, tortured and killed in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir. After being missing for a week, her body was found on January 17.

In Uttar Pradesh's Unnao, an 18-year-old girl has alleged that she was raped by a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA. Both the cases left the nation in a state of shock.
