PIL filed by Women lawyers in the SC to Castrate child sex offenders

Women lawyers in the Supreme Court have filed a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking a direction to the Centre to consider imposing castration for child sex abusers and child rapists. Voicing their concerns over the increasing incidents of sexual assaults across the country, the PIL filed by the Supreme Court Women Lawyers Association (SCWLA) reads, “only castration can be an effective deterrent”.

This is not the first time that the Centre has been asked to consider castration as a punishment, Madras High Court too had asked the Centre to consider it.  The PIL stated that a child is abused every 30 minutes in India and there has been a 151% increase in child rapes in the past five years. The PIL came in retrospect to a shocking incident in Bulandshahar district of Uttar Pradesh where a 28-day-old baby girl was raped.
