Kathua girl's sedation, rape confirmed by medical experts: J&K police

Kathua rape case Resigned because of bad perception created by national media says BJP leader Lal Singh Your assurances of justice for rape victims 'wholly inadequate, platitudinous': Academics to PM Modi

India's Cabinet on Saturday (April 21) approved the death penalty for rapists of girls below the age of 12, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi held an emergency meeting in response to nationwide outrage in the wake of a series of cases.

"Going by the nature of the injuries, they seem to be caused in the period ranging from one week to one day prior to the recovery of the body, suggesting that the girl might have been held captive, tortured and possibly raped", the doctor involved in the case was quoted by the Press Trust of India as saying. It comes into effect immediately, but needs parliament's approval within a few months to remain legal.

The latest outpouring of national revulsion came after details emerged of the gang rape of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in a Hindu-dominated area of Jammu and Kashmir state. Supreme Court lawyer Karuna Nundy says that the rate of rapes has not decreased since the death penalty for the crime was introduced in India in 2013.

India has the death penalty for the most brutal murders and terror attacks.

The case has triggered protests throughout the country and made headlines when thousands of members of Hindu radical group Hindu Ekta Manch - or the Hindu Unity Platform - marched in support of the accused men.

A woman was detained by police and questioned for appearing in a number of videos wearing a crop top. The General Sports Authority said that the video had scenes that could corrupt public morals.


The matter was highlighted after the first report by the Forensic Science Laboratory, dated January 30, in the Kathua rape and murder case started doing rounds on the print as well as the electronic media. But the sentences are rarely carried out and are often struck down on appeal by higher courts.

On Saturday, police in central Madhya Pradesh state arrested a man over the rape and murder of a four-month-old girl.

His daughter was found dead in a forest in Kathua district in January, a week after she went missing while grazing horses.

The politician remained free for nearly a year after police rejected pleas from the victim to file a rape case against the legislator.

Over 600 academicians and scholars from across the globe have written an open letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressing their anguish over the Kathua and Unnao rape cases and held his government responsible for the bad state of affairs.
