Barbaric punishment for barbaric crimes
Barbaric crimes against women such as gang rape, dowry deaths, acid attacks, and stripping women and parading them in public are on the rise. The culprits are not deterred by our laws and our police. Some drastic changes are necessary.

IT SEEMS that the punishments for these crimes is inadequate. It would also seem that a class of people has come to believe that they can get away with such deeds. Laws for dealing with these crimes are in place. But the punishments for such cases are not adequate to deter potential culprits. If harsh punishment is legislated to punish these offenses then no one would contemplate committing these crimes. Some suggestions in this regard are given below.

Punishment for Dowry Deaths by Burning

Any person or persons, convicted by a court of law, for burning a woman for any reason whatsoever, should be sentenced to death by burning. The sentence can be carried out at a public place after giving due publicity. The public would be allowed to see the execution free of cost. Television channels would be welcome to telecast the event alive.

Punishment for Gang-Rape

Persons, convicted in a court of law, for gang raping a woman will, in addition to serving the prison sentence as per law will have a foreign body inserted in their anus for a period of 6 hours. The punishment will be carried out in a public place after giving due publicity. The public would be allowed to see the execution free of cost. Television channels would be welcome to telecast the event alive.

Punishment for Throwing Acid

Any person or persons, convicted in a court of law, for throwing acid on any person for any reason whatsoever, will have acid thrown on the person to the same part of the anatomy. The punishment will be carried out in a public place after giving due publicity. The public would be allowed to see the execution free of cost. Television channels would be welcome to telecast the event alive.

Punishment for Stripping Women

Any person or person who forces another person whether male or female to strip naked in a public place or in case of women, forcibly removes any pert of her clothing for any reason whatsoever, will on conviction by a court of law, be punished by parading the said person or persons naked in public for a period of a minimum of two hours and be given ten strokes of cane.

Dealing with such Cases

All the above offenses will be non bailable. The trial must commence within 90 days of the registration of the complaint. The trial will be completed within 90 days of commencement. If the accused are absconding for more than seven days, the accused will be declared proclaimed offenders and all their moveable and immovable assets will be seized, auctioned and credited to government treasury. Any persons harboring the accused, if proved guilty in a court of law, will be treated as co accused and be liable to the same punishment as the accused.
