The nation is the shock with the latest rape and murder case of Priyanka Reddy.
In the horrific incident, the 26 year old was first brutally raped and then she was set on fire on the Hyderabad outskirts. Four people has been arrested in this case.
As per the reports, the four people who has been arrested had already pre-planned this barbaric incident after they came across that the victim parked her scooty at the toll plaza.
The accused later on deflated the tyre assuming that the lady would later come up in the evening to pick up her parked vehicle.
Finally, when Priyanka Reddy returned to the place where her vehicle was parked, then she noticed that she had a flat tyre.
She further rang her sister who suggested to leave the vehicle on the spot and further come back home by booking a cab.
Before she could book her cab, two men came and offered to fix her flat tyre.
The victim was then dragged to the bushes where she was gang raped. Later, they took her to an under construction bridge where she was set on fire.
Sexual violence and rape against women has been ever increasing since the infamous December 2012 Delhi gang-rape. As per the latest government figures, police had registered about 33,658 rape cases last year.
All these has been virtually the result of long trial at courts. Many criminals believe that they can easily escape their crime as there is a great loophole in the Indian court panel.
Let us look at some of the punishments that is give against rape in some other countries:-
- China – Death castration or sentence
- Saudi Arab – beheading within days of crime
- North Korea – Death through firing squad
- Afghanistan – Hanged to death or fired on head
- Egypt – Death through hanging
- Iran – Hanged till death
Above seeing the above rape punishment by some other countries, our Indian government should also take some inspiration and give harsh punishments to the rape accused such that all these rape incidents are minimized in the country.
