Amend laws for stricter punishment: Biman
Left Front Chairman Biman Bose on Sunday lamented that West Bengal topped the list when it came to atrocities against women and demanded amendments to laws for ensuring stricter punishment to the perpetrators. "We need amendment to the legislation to put a lid on the incidence of rapes. It is a sad pointer that despite having a woman at the helm, the state tops the number of attacks against women," Bose said at a farmers' meet in Darjeeling. Bose expressed outrage at the brutal attack on the girl in Delhi and said he had no words to console the bereaved family.
