    Already the country is shock wave with so many rape incidents & murders and this incident will surely bring panic in the heart and minds of ladies (including children) !
    Lot's of organizations, public and media are highlighting the grave concern. High time that our judiciary, ministers, senior politicians and law enforcement agencies shall work together to introduce capital punishment without further delay.
    Rapists should not get bail and if proved must be hanged immediately. Failure of quick and fast action is encouraging rapists to ignore the fear.
