Govt to soon bring bill proposing death penalty for crime of lynching.


The central government will soon bring a bill proposing death penalty for the crime of lynching. Union Minister of State for Home Hansraj Ahir told a delegation of the Nathjogi community who called on him in Yavatmal, Maharashtra today that the proposed bill will be on the lines of a legislation seeking capital punishment to those convicted of raping girls below the age of 12 years.

He said Lynching is a barbaric crime and no civilised society can accept it. The minister’s remarks came against the backdrop of a spate of incidents of mob violence over cow smuggling and child lifting being reported from various parts of the country.
