CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR RAPE

The debate on capital punishment has been running over the past so many decades, but yet nothing concrete is coming up. Many may be satisfied with the present legislation on giving of capital punishment but to many of us its still not serving the purpose that it is deemed to serve.

Which as far as our understanding goes is increasing day by day. History is evidence to the fact that capital punishment has never acted and would never act as deterrence to crime.

Would it be right to say that its more like another divide between the rich and the poor. Till date the capital punishments have only acted as deterrence for those families who could hardly earn bread and butter forget about hiring a smart lawyer who could effectively play with the facts of the case to serve his clients. Only few months back a man named Dhannajay was given capital punishment for raping and then killing a minor girl. His act as such was brutal calling for severe action against him, but it seems that the ends of justice have not actually been met out. So many cases of murder go not unnoticed but without any punishment to the doer only because he has money to meet out whatever expenditure might come in defending his case.

Thanks to the idea of capital punishment that an easier way to do away with the crime has been found by the doers of the heinous crime. To kill the victim throw her somewhere and move away and if lucky enough then the crime would never be traced back to the offender.

The frequency of crime against women ,the inadequacy of the law of rape manifested in number of judgments and the strong protests by social activists ,jurist and judges and scholarship general and women organization in particular, against the failure of law to protect victim of rape. Death for rapist has become a familiar theme in parliament whenever the matter comes up for discussion in the week of large –scale rapes taking place in the country .The existing penal provision of rape under sec. 376, IPC would reveal that punishment may extent up to life imprisonment with section minimum imprisonment for 7year and sub section (2) Imprisonment for 10years with custodial rape and rape with a pregnant women. Since the legislature has already taken adequate measures, there is hardly any justification for death punishment the debate on capital punishment has been running over the past so many decades, but yet nothing concrete is coming up.

Now a days in India Rape is become the most heinous crime in the country. Due to this reason even the Indian Judiciary in great chaos. Some of the famous jurists and the social organisation working for the benefit of women have a view that to make the crime less active in the country the Judiciary must make the amendment in the punishment of rape and make capital punishment in the cases of rape. But in the mean while Judiciary have their own reasoning which state that if they make the capital punishment is the punishment in the cases of rape. Sometimes it will take the undue advantage of the other party. The problem is that how to decide the rarest of rarest in certain cases. Now researcher would analyses the all relevant aspect related to making capitals punishment in cases of rape.
