A bill has been prepared by the government that will allow castration of rapists as punishment for raping women, according to reports.
The reports, aired by TV channels, claim that the Prime Minister Imran Khan has approved draft of the bill and it will be submitted to the Law Ministry for final vetting before it is presented in the Parliament.
The bill was drafted after a horrific rape of woman was reported from Lahore-Sialkot Motorway where two bandits subjected woman to rape after her ran out of fuel on the deserted motorway.
After four days, one of the two accused was arrested who confessed his crime. Shafqat told police that he along with his accomplice Abid Ali raped woman in bushes along the motorway.
He said the woman was strongly resisting going into the bushes, “so we first dragged her children there and she followed us, where we subjected her to assault.”
The other suspect, Abid Ali, is still at large and police are conducting raids to arrest him.
