Defence minister Rajnath Singh on Monday (December 1) said that the government is prepared to enact the most robust provision in law to check incidents of heinous crimes like the Hyderabad veterinarian rape and murder case and have a discussion in Parliament on the issue of crime against women. "All lawmakers cutting across party lines have condemned the incident and demanded to give harsher punishment to the accused involved in the incident". Calling the incident a disgrace on humanity, he said administrative skill, political will and change of mindset are required to deal with such crimes.
Ms Jaya Bachchan of Samajwadi Party demanded action against the security officer posted in the area where the incident happened. "These kind of people should be brought out in public and lynched".
Speaking on the issue, DMK leader P Wilson said that the law for dealing with such incidents were not stringent and suggested that courts should be empowered to order surgical or chemical castration for serious offences like rape and murder.
The cost of such procedure should be recovered from the accused by selling his assets, he said, adding list of sexual offenders should also be made public. "A fast-track court should be set up. The Chief Minister also chose to set up a fast track court to deal with the case", according to an official release issued from the office of the Telangana CM.
