Lynching, death penalty, castration: Voices from Parliament on Hyderabad vet’s rape

The 26-year-old veterinarian was gang-raped and killed allegedly by two truck drivers and two cleaners near a toll plaza on Outer Ring Road (ORR) at Shamshabad on the outskirts of Hyderabad on the night of Wednesday.

She also questioned the security arrangements in the area and that a similar incident took place in Hyderabad just a day before the horrendous crime happened.

"I think the people now want the government to give a proper answer, and a very definite answer".

As the issue was raised in Rajya Sabha on Monday, Samajwadi Party leader Jaya Bachchan roared saying that the accused in the case show be shamed in public and lynched.

But since that had not happened, Mr Singh said, "the government is ready for a discussion in the parliament on the issue of crimes against women and willing to explore stringent provisions in laws to check such incidents".

Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said the society will have to tackle this problem at its root. Around 9.15 pm, the four accused - identified as Jollu Shiva, Jollu Naveen, Mohammad Areef and Chintakunta Chennakesavulu - approached her with offers to help. "We all are witness.appeal, mercy (petition).can anybody think of having mercy on such people?", Naidu said, summing up the mood of the House.

While T.K. Rangarajan of CPM said laws be framed to tackle crime are not percolating down, Vaiko of the DMK wanted concrete action be taken to deal with such crimes.

Vijila Sathyananth, the AIADMK MP in the Rajya Sabha, got visibly emotional and said a fast track court should be set up and the people who committed the crime should be hanged before 31 December. "I think these people need to be shamed in front of the entire country, people who have not done their jobs properly", she said.

"This should be on an emergency basis", Yajnik said in the Upper House. "The country is not safe for children and women", she added.

Trinamool member Shantanu Sen said that strong steps must be taken by bringing legislation, by setting up fast-track courts and exemplary punishment. "I also feel that physical training should be made compulsory for girls in all schools", she added.

"It has hurt everyone. The accused must be given the most stringent punishment for their crime", Singh said. According to the probe, one of them deflated her bike's tyre. The accused have been arrested by the Cyberabad police. Three policemen have been suspended for dereliction of duty as a result of the appalling incident.

Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao directed officials on Sunday to ensure that the accused are tried in a fast track court after the Hyderabad vet's rape and murder led to massive protests in Telangana and an outpouring of rage across the country.
