Strict Law should be amended for rape cases
Nowadays the incident of rape, gang-rape is increasing at a tremendous speed. More or less every day , we go through the news of rape , gang-rape in different districts of the country , in different ways .If the concerned authorities fails to take strong initiative and stern action against the offenders then the situation may go out of control and turn epidemic .
We have witnessed worst incidents of rape and thereafter killing of Tonu, killing Nusrat to fire, the rape of house wife of Subarnachar, the rape and killing of Shahinoor Akhter Tania in bus and lastly the rape of a school girl by a police in Madaripur and many more painful incidents. Nobody is safe as when she may come under the greed of sexual assault by these social animals.
However , in my opinion and reviewing the incidents of rapes last few years there is no option with us to see these cases in a lenient way and law should be immediately amended for capital punishment and within 30 working days of filing the case by a victim as justice delayed justice denied.
