Prez Green Signal For Ordinance Against Crime Against Women

Prasident Pranab Mukherjee on Sunday gave green signal to the Criminal Law (Amendment) Ordinance 2013, according to Home Ministry sources. Couple of days back Central Govt passed an ordinance on sexual violence against women under which rape that leads to death of the victim can now attract death penalty.

However women groups protested against the ordinance and attacked Govt for doing ‘injustice’ to Verma Committee recommendations.The ordinance proposes enhanced punishment for other crimes against women like stalking, voyeurism, acid attacks, indecent gestures like words and inappropriate touch and brings into its ambit ‘marital rape’.
