Hyderabad veterinary doctor`s rape, murder rocks Parliament

Speaking in the Rajya Sabha, Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan on Monday said that lynching was perhaps the only way to put an end to ghastly crimes against women.

As the Hyderabad veterinarian rape-murder case continues to shock the entire country, the Upper house of Parliament took the issue for discussion. Calling the incident a disgrace on humanity, he said administrative skill, political will and change of mindset are required to deal with such crimes. In the Rajya Sabha, on the other hand, lawmakers across party lines condemned the gruesome act and called for stricter laws against perpetrators. "These type of people should be brought out in public and lynched", she said.

He said that he also shares the sentiments of the house that the accused should be given exemplary punishment.

DMK's P Wilson said courts should order "castration of rapists" before they are released from jails to check repeat offenders.

Mohammad Ali Khan of the Congress wanted timelines be set for trial of accused in fast track courts and the accused not be given an religious colour. Around 9.15 pm, the four accused - identified as Jollu Shiva, Jollu Naveen, Mohammad Areef and Chintakunta Chennakesavulu - approached her with offers to help.


Bachchan said the security personnel in charge of the area where the crime took place must be held accountable. Following on from protests over the weekend, hundreds of people again gathered in Delhi on Monday to demand a fast-tracked investigation in the Hyderabad case and more stringent laws protecting women in India.

While Manoj Kumar Jha (RJD) said deterrence is not enough, R K Sinha of the BJP said capital punishment is yet to be given to the guilty of the 2012 gang rape and murder of a young woman in Delhi due to appeals in the case.

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.

Meanwhile, the accused have been sent to 14-day judicial custody on Saturday.
