Jaya Bachchan lashed out during question hour over Hyderabad gang rape

Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan on Monday lashed out over the gang rape and murder of 26-year-old veterinarian in Hyderabad. She said rapists should be brought out in public and lynched.

“The accused in the rape cases should be named and shamed. These kind of people should be brought out in public and lynched,” said the Samajwadi Party legislator.
“It’s time that the government gives a proper answer on how they have tackled the rape cases. A similar incident happened in Hyderabad a day before the vet was raped,” she said.

The Hyderabad case rocked both the Houses of Parliament on Monday with the lawmakers calling for stricter laws against crimes against women.

Upper House chairman M Venkaiah Naidu, over the calls for a new law, said to tackle crimes against women a change of mindset is required and not a new bill.

“What is required is not a new bill. What is required is political will, administrative skill, change of mindset and then go for kill of the social evil,” he said.

Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao directed officials on Sunday to ensure that the Hyderabad rape-murder accused are tried in a fast track court. The four accused in the case were sent to 14-day judicial custody on Saturday.
