Letter P ublished in The National UAE on 15April 18 India must enact swift justice in abuse and sexual assault cases
I refer to your article Indians shocked by two child rape cases (April 13). It was sad and painful to read. Such cases have increased in India in the recent months. The recent rape and murder of an eight-year-old child in Jammu and Kashmir by a gang is unacceptable. In the state of Uttar Pradesh, a girl was allegedly raped nine months ago, a case which has led to the ongoing investigation into a member of the ruling BJP party.
There is much talk in India about the empowerment of women. Incidents such as these are despicable and set back such talk. The government must legislate to speed up the legal process in such cases and no one should be spared from being brought to justice.
