CM seeks harsher punishment to avert rapes

Reacting to the death of the Delhi gangrape victim, CM Prithviraj Chavan said: "To ensure such incidents do not happen a provision of harsher punishment needs to be made in our laws. It is also necessary such cases are tried in fast-track courts and the guilty punished."

Chavan said he would hold discussions with the Centre to ensure this gets done.

"Harsh laws, swift hearing, immediate meting out of justice and social enlightenment will help reduce such incidents."
