The move comes amid widespread outrage across the country over such crimes The move comes amid widespread outrage across the country over such crimes

 In case of gang-rape of a girl below the age of 12, the punishment will be- death penalty or life imprisonment.

In the first incident, a seven-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a middle-aged man in Rampur. There is no more heinous crime than rape, there is no larger pain.Every rapist should be hanged: "Asha Devi, mother of 2012 Delhi gangrape victim on ordinance to amend POCSO act", she said. The Parliament will meet next for the Monsoon Session. "Now, therefore, in exercise of the powers conferred by clause (1) of article 123 of the Constitution, the President is pleased to promulgate the following ordinance", the gazette notification said. While POCSO deals with cases of male and female child sexual abuse in an identical way, the government's ordinance stipulates death penalty only when a girl child below the age of 12 is raped. Under the earlier law, the maximum punishment for child rape was life in prison.

As per news agency ANI, the Union Cabinet approved an Ordinance to be promulgated to provide for stringent punishment for perpetrators of rape particularly of girls below 16 years age and below 12 years of age.

"The death penalty is easy political candy to hand out to angry and upset citizens, but it's much harder to work on justice systems that guarantee swift, certain punishment for sexual assault or to limit the violent patriarchies that cause rape in the first place", Nundy said. The National Crime Records Bureau will maintain a national database and profile of sexual offenders.

The way trials in rape cases are conducted is very disturbing, Shah said.

Time limit for completion of trial of all rape cases has also been prescribed and it has to be necessarily completed in two months. This follows the nationwide protest following the rape of an eight year old girl in Kathua, Jammu.

Dedicated manpower will be provided for investigation of rape cases in a time-bound manner, new posts of public prosecutors will be created and, eventually, special forensic labs exclusively for rape cases would be established in each state.

The proposed Ordinance also removes the provision for the anticipatory bail for those of raping or gang-raping a child under the age of 16.

 Special forensic kits will be provided to all Police Stations and hospitals for rape cases.

He has also given his consent to Fugitive Economic Offenders Ordinance (FEOO) allowing the government to confiscate properties and assets of loan defaulters who flee the country to escape from facing criminal prosecution.
