“I feel that they (cops) should be treated as a criminals and should be given enhanced punishments and I think the law provides for that. If the policemen are found guilty under custodial rape or any other case they should be given punishment, no quarter-ship should be given to them and no mercy should be shown to them.”

The National Commission for Women (NCW) has also reacted quickly and took suo moto cognizance of the case.
