DCW chief writes to PM over women's safety

NEW DELHI: Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chairperson Swati Jai Hind on Saturday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, requesting him to implement strict laws and sentence death to those who commit rape on girls younger than six months.
"A system should be created where an accused who has raped a girl child below six months, should be given a death sentence," said Jai Hind in her letter.
The letter comes in the wake of the rape of an eight-month-old girl in Delhi by her 28-year-old cousin.
"I want to divert your (PM Modi's) attention towards the incident where an eight-month-old girl was raped. This little girl is suffering and fighting for her life at AIIMS," her letter stated.
The DCW chief also said that in the past two years, she has written numerous letters to him, all of which went unanswered.
Jai Hind also said that criminals think they can get away with the crime of rape, as the system in the country is "incapable" of doing anything.
