Delhi gang-rape culprits have no right to live: Pratibha Patil

By Pti
Pratibha Patil
Pune, Dec 30: Condoling death of the 23-year-old Delhi gang-rape victim, former President Pratibha Patil has said the perpetrators of the crime "had no right to live".

"As the case falls under the rarest of rare category, in my opinion the guilty had no right to live," she told a Marathi news-channel on Saturday, Dec 29.

While capital punishment is needed to be debated in Parliament and by legal experts, its implementation should be considered in the rarest of rare cases, Patil said.

She also called for a change of social mindset and particularly that of men and asked the youths to bring about the transformation by eradicating such evil tendencies.
