We need to come up with a charter of demands for protection of seriuos crimes against women including Foeticide, Rapes, Murders, Acid Attacks etc. Once we get inputs from a variety of people we can come up with a comprehensive set of demands and campaign for this cause viz. charter of demands to be implemented in the whole of India and not just a piecemeal and reactive action after every instance of heinous crime that gets reported in the media.

The initial list of Actions could be:

i. Mandate non-bailable warrants for such cases
ii. Cases should be heard only by Fast track courts all over the country
iii. Law should be made stricter for more severe punishments to the guilty

Please feel free to suggest additions to this list so that we collectively can up with a comprehensive list of Actions and then gather support using a poll.

Jai Hind.

i. Mandate non-bailable warrants for such cases. ii. Cases should be mandatorily heard only by Fast track courts all over the country. The cases should be completed in a time-bound manner (Say 2-3 months). iii. Law should be made stricter for more severe punishments to the guilty. Minimum sentence period should be mandatory. iv. In the case of Gang Rape, since it is intentional, the minimum punishment should be capital punishment. v. FIR should be mandatorily filed by the police within a day or two. If not automatic action should be specified. vi. Irrespective of Jurisdiction, police has to take action immediately on arriving at a crime scene. Jurisdiction and hence responsibility can be sorted out later. vii. Affected person should be able to depose by video in order to avoid getting traumatised by aggressive questions in a court. viii. The Identification of culprits also should be done in such a way that the victim need not come in front of the culprits for e.g. using a video showing the potential culprits for identification. ix. Final responsibility (ownership) of all Rape cases should rest with a senior police official and there should be no excuses accepted. In the case of mishandling of any case automatic action against the senior level police official should be initiated.
