  1. As rape constitutes violence against women with traumatic injuries and even death of the victims, it is high time public demanded that reported cases should be publicly condemned and not be treated with levity in all policy response and judicial interpretation. Any body or perpetrator caught in this acts must be heavily punished up to 20years imprisonment.
