Rape in India

South China Morning Post     Wednesday, Feb.19, 2014

An Indian court on Wednesday sentenced three men to death for abducting and raping a 19-year-old woman whose mutilated body was found days later, reports said.

The court in New Delhi said the three men, all aged in their 20s, should receive the harshest sentence for the 2012 attack because their crimes fell into the “rarest of rare” category under Indian law.

“Death to all three,” presiding judge Virender Bhat was quoted by the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency as saying.

The father of the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, welcomed the judgment, saying he has been so consumed with fighting for justice for his daughter that he has been unable to hold down a job.

“I fought a lone battle for two years, and it has paid off,” the father, 45, who was in court to hear the sentences, said.

The government toughened laws on sexual violence against women in March last year, following outrage at the fatal gang-rape of a student on a Delhi bus in December 2012.

Four adults were sentenced to death last year over that attack, a crime that sparked seething anger about the treatment of women in India.

The new laws allow for the death penalty in cases where a rape victim dies from the attack or is left in a vegetative state.

The woman, who worked as an assistant with a private company in the megacity of Gurgaon on Delhi’s outskirts, was dragged into a car near her home in February 2012 before being gang-raped, PTI said.

An attorney in the case told the court that acid had been poured into the eyes of the victim and a broken liquor bottle had been forced into her private parts, the news agency reported.

The body of the woman, who was working while pursuing her undergraduate studies, was found rotting in a village field in Haryana state, miles away from the national capital, three days later.

The three were convicted of kidnapping, murder and gang-rape.

The sentence comes amid a renewed debate in India about the death penalty, after the country’s top court this week spared three people who plotted to kill former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi from the hangman’s noose.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
