Definition of under aged may be changed in India

DN-india-rapeThe recent incident of rape where a dental student was gang raped, tortured, thrown from running bus and at the end death of victim at a hospital in Singapore, has raised a question.

Indian police have identified six men. But they have brought charge against five. One of them is under aged.

In India on one aged below 18 can’t be tried under regular law. But the alleged under aged did the most severe crime. He raped twice and beaten the student severely.

According to the Indian law he can be sentenced for only three years of imprisonment if convicted.

Now many women right activists are arguing that definition of under age should be only 16.

The Indian government officials have admitted that Indian police lack in awareness and training to secure women. Now they have decided to recruit more female police to secure the women.
