Culprits accused of abetting indulging helping the situation etc each one of them booked under different section or sections of IPC AND FOR EACH SUCH SECTION VIS A VIS Type of rape - penetration, molestation, burning, cold blood murdering etc - THE JUDGE HAS TO BREAK HIS HEAD TO AWARD PUNISHMENT that too after several years later of the crime committed, when there is a possibility that minor accused might turn grand-dad or grand old man of India. 2. Like in Arab countries, punishment to be awarded in a public spot in broad day light with huge spectators around. Defying their culture, even if foreigners engage in kissing a (muslim or no Muslim) are stoned to death. Something similar punishment in India broadcasted live would naturally be a terrific deterrent. 3. Instead of death penalty as deterrent, I would suggest rapist’s private part excised and kept in display, suitably titled in public space or in museum. 4. I remember to have read a few decades ago in press, one victim lured the rapist back to her dwelling, intoxicated him and cut his private part ran in public holding it. God save Indian female children, daughters, ladies & women. Bestow them the power to cause the approaching men with rape intention to turn instantly Impotents! Yes . Deterrent works indeed in Middle East. India too should have exactly like that.
