Delhi anti-rape protests: PM makes fresh appeal for peace; BJP lashes out at 'inaction'

Delhi anti-rape protest

BJP leader Sushma Swaraj had earlier on Saturday urged the Prime Minister to convene a Special Session of Parliament for amending the existing law to provide death sentence for heinous crimes against women.

"I have just spoken to Prime Minister. I requested Prime Minister for a special session of Parliament to frame a law to provide for exemplary punishment for crimes against women," she tweeted.

The condition of the 23-year-old girl, who is presently being treated at the Safdarjung Hospital here, continues to be critical.
