Mumbai: Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh condemned the Hderbad rape-murder case and said that the government can bring a new law to control and eliminate such crimes against women.
Speaking in the Lok Sabha, over the brutal rape and murder of a 26-year-old doctor in Hyderabad, Singh said that the incident has brought shame to the entire country.
“It has hurt everyone. The defence minister said that the accused should be given the harshest punishment for their crime. He said that to control and eliminate such crimes against women, we are ready to enact such a law, which the whole House agrees to.
Earlier on Sunday, the Cyberabad police revealed in its remand report that gang-raping and murdering of the doctor prevented the whiskey from pouring into its mouth.
According to the report, (which is based on the statements of the four accused), men between the ages of 20 and 26 planned to sexually harass the victim when they saw her scooty parking.
On November 29, all the accused were taken into custody. A magistrate in Shadnagar town last week remanded the accused to judicial custody for 14 days. They were later shifted to Cherlapally jail in Hyderabad.
