    When I heard this incident, I was shocked and hurt. This crime is extremely horrible.
    Because of the Law in terms of this kind of crime is just ordinary in India, people are not afraid of it.
    It is time Government(Suprme Court) change the Law.

    This kind of crime must be punishable by hanging once found guilty. No sympathy.
