Delhi gangrape case to be tried on fast-track basis: Shinde

Sushil Kumar Shinde

He was joined by party colleague Venkaiah Naidu, who sought reasons for delay in collecting details about the incident.

Jaya Bachchan (SP) told the minister, "Instead of saying I will try (to take action against culprits), you must say 'I will'. Why cannot the government be strong?"

Naresh Gujral (SAD) wanted to know whether the government would set a time frame to investigate the incident and punish culprits.

Responding to them, Shinde said, "It is true that the bus was moving for hours. It is a matter of investigation. I will conduct inquiry, I shall take action. Until investigation is completed, I do not want to make statement here."

Earlier, participating in the discussion, Jharna Das Baidya (CPI-M) asked the government to come up with strictest laws to punish culprits.

Gyan Prakash Pilania (BSP) said people will not be afraid of law if conviction rate is only 26 per cent.

Bimpla Kashyap Das (AGP) suggested death penalty for convicts of rape.

Javed Akhtar (Nom) said discussion on this alone will not suffice and suggested police reforms. He also proposed strictest action, but not capital punishment, against culprits.

Basavaraja Patil (BJP), Rama Jois (BJP) and Yogendra P Trivedi (NCP) also condemned the incident.
