Will hanging convicts decrease rate of rape cases, asks Aparna Sen


Kolkata, Dec 03: As the outrage over the Hyderabad rape-murder case continues to grow in the country, with common people and politicians seeking death for the accused, eminent filmmaker Aparna Sen wondered if hanging the perpetrators would lead to a substantial fall in number of such crimes.

Sen's comments were made in the wake of Rajya Sabha MPs demanding death penalty, lynching and castration as punishment for the four accused in the case.
