Lawmaker Jaya Bachchan wants mob justice, says Hyderabad vet’s rapists should be lynched

NEW DELHI: Rajya Sabha members cutting across party lines on Monday condemned the gruesome rape and brutal murder of a 27-year old veterinarian in Hyderabad last week.

Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan who stood up to speak amid rage over the Telangana incident, in which four men have been accused of raping and murdering the 26-year-old woman in Hyderabad on Wednesday night, sparking nation-wide protests, said that not just name and shame, but perhaps lynching, though too extreme, would be the only way to put an end for once and all to such crimes against women.

The senior leaders called for fast-tracking the case and exemplary punishment for the culprits.

Leader of Opposition (LoP) in the Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad, said that many legislations had been enacted in the past to deal with such heinous crimes but it was time for people from across society to rise against such acts of brutality.
