lok sabhaNew Delhi:- Some woman members in the Lok Sabha today expressed indignation at the recent cases of rape in different parts of the country and made an impassioned plea for stringent action against rapists, drawing widespread support from across the political divide.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Ranjeet Ranjan (Cong) spoke about the gangrape of a girl in Haryana by the same accused who had raped her three years back and the sexual assault and murder of a girl in Maharashtra.

She also highlighted the rape of a girl in Uttar Pradesh who later delivered a child and was reportedly threatened by the accused.

“I don’t think women and girls are getting justice, irrespective of how many laws we may have. By speaking here, I am merely trying to satisfy myself and tell the victims that at least I can vent out my frustration here if not anything else.

“Will they get justice in our country or we will merely bow our heads in shame,” she asked.

Supriya Sule (NCP) also raised the recent case of rape and murder in Maharashtra and demanded stringent steps to check such heinous crimes.

She said that after the Delhi gangrape incident, Parliament had passed laws in one voice. “But no change is coming in the society. Now is the time to look at what more we can do… Some stringent actions are required,” she said.

At one point, she suggested public hanging of those criminals, but immediately said “this is not right thing” and wanted more discussion on the subject.

The members drew support from all sections of the House as they made their points forcefully.
