NEW DELHI: A “deeply, deeply disturbed” Maneka Gandhi said today that she intends to ask for the death penalty for those who rape children below 12 years of age.

The women and child development minister’s comment, in a video released today, comes amid a groundswell of horror at the bid to communalise the gory gang rape and murder of eight-year-old Asifa in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua, and another incident of rape in Unnao in Uttar Pradesh.

“Am deeply, deeply disturbed by the rape case in Kathua, and all the recent rape cases. I and the ministry intend to bring an amendment to the POCSO Act asking for the death penalty for the rape of children below 12 years of age,” said Maneka. POCSO is the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012.
