Rapists should be brought out in public and lynched, says Jaya Bachchan

New Delhi: As the uproar over the rape cases in the country continued in the Parliament, Samajwadi Party’s MP Jaya Bachchan, on Monday, said that rapists should be ‘brought out in public and lynched’.

Bachchan also wanted the security personnel in charge of the area in Hyderabad where the crime took place to be held accountable.

In a discussion on the increasing crimes against women that was held after nationwide protests in the aftermath of the veterinarian’s gang-rape and murder, Bachchan said people now want the government to give a proper and a definite answer – which according to her is lynching of the accused.

The gang rape of the 26-year-old doctor whose body was set on fire and dumped near a toll booth in the Telangana capital has sent shockwaves through India, with hundreds of women taking to the streets to voice their outrage.
