Lynching the rapists, death penalty and castration of the accused were some of the suggestions that Parliamentarians proposed on Monday as they expressed outrage over the 26-year-old veterinarian’s rape in Hyderabad. Union Minister Rajnath Singh, meanwhile, said that the Centre is “ready for discussions to curb such crimes”.

Leading the chorus of angry parliamentarians, Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan Monday said rapists should be “brought out in public and lynched.” “I don’t know how many times I’ve stood and spoken after this kind of crime. I think it is time… whether Nirbhaya or Kathua or what happened in Telangana… I think the people now want the government to give a proper and definite answer,” she said in Rajya Sabha. She also added that the security personnel in charge of the area where the crime took place to be held accountable and questions be asked. “I think these people need to be shamed in front of the entire country.”

Four men have been accused of raping and murdering a 26-year-old woman in Hyderabad on Wednesday night. According to the probe, one of them deflated her bike’s tire. When she returned from work, two of them offered help. When she agreed, they dragged her to an abandoned room, raped her and later burnt her.
