The State Administration should act fast before the situation gets out of control and culprits should be brought to the book with stringent punishment so that it act as deterrent to others !!!
It is shocking there is so many rape cases in Haryana. This is a massive social and criminal justice problem. The government should address this problem is multi-levels: 1. Revamp the criminal justice system to hand over life terms for rapists and also people who support it. 2. Use people orginatizations like NGOs , schools etc to educate the people that this is most serious crime. 3. Address any drug related issues and go after the supply chain. 4. Address any nexus between Police, politicians, criminals leads this criminals to think they can get away easily. 5. Seize all properties of the accused. 6. Make sure our population is not exposed to violent movies, obscene movies both in theatres and online. I always see how our censor board gives rating for shocking and stnning movies. I also see how families flock to buy a ticket and watch this movies which brreds creepy charaters in childrens mind. 7. Internet sites which sells sex etc should be effectively banned.
