A court in India said that child rapists should be castrated

A court in India said that child rapists should be castrated after existing laws have been “ineffective and incapable” in protecting children.

 

Madras High Court’s Justice N Kirubakaran made these comments while hearing the case of a British national accused of sexually abusing a boy.

 

It has been two years since India tightened its laws on sexual violence after a student was brutally gang-raped and murdered but earlier this month the horrific rapes of three young children in Delhi has erupted in national outrage.

 

Kirubakaran said, “When the law is ineffective and incapable of addressing the menace, this court cannot keep its hands folded and remain a silent spectator, unmoved and oblivious of the recent happenings of horrible blood-curdling gang rapes of children in various parts of India,” adding that the “court is sure the castration of child rapists will fetch magical results”.

 

Chemical castration, while it may seem barbaric to some, has been considered by several nations this year including Guam and Indonesia as a means of curbing these horrific crimes against children.
