Rapists burden on earth, don't deserve to live: MP CM

NC Network, Bhopal

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on Friday that rapists are "burden on the earth" and do not deserve to live.

He also condemned the incident in Mandsaur, where an eight-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a man, who abducted her from outside her school.

He said "Yeh darinde dharti par bojh hai. Yeh dharti par jeevit rahne ke layak nahi hai," (These beasts are a burden on the earth. They do not deserve to live)."

He also added, "In cases of rape, we have made a provision for trial in the fast track courts. We will request the high court and the Supreme Court to make a similar provision so that culprits in such crimes get capital punishment at the earliest."

A bill has been unanimously passed by the Madhya Pradesh Assembly last year awarding death penalty to those found guilty of raping girls aged 12 and below.

"It was a painful incident. We are with the (victim's) family and keeping an eye on the girl's condition. Her condition is improving and I am in constant touch with the doctors," Chouhan said on the Mandsaur incidence.  

"The accused has already been arrested and there is evidence against him. We will ensure through fast track courts that he will get capital punishment at the earliest," the chief minister added.

The incident took place on Tuesday evening when the girl was waiting for her family members outside her school after the school got over. The accused, Irfan alias Bhaiyu (20) abducted her and took her to the bus stand area, where he raped the girl in the bushes near Laxman Darwaja.
The accused was arrested on wednesday night, who even tried to kill her by slitting her throat using a knife.
