In Wake Of India Rape Protests, Government Announces Name And Shame Plans

A 23-year-old student who was gang-raped on December 16 in New Delhi has died in a Singapore hospital

The Indian government has announced plans to name and shame convicted rapists, in the wake of widespread protests over the gang rape of a young student.

Ratanjit Pratap Narain Singh, India’s junior Home Minister, said the names, addresses, and photographs of the convicts will be posted on the Delhi Police website, in a move to combat an endemic problem of sex crimes against women.

According to the Herald Sun, Singh told reporters “we are planning to start it [the campaign] in Delhi,” hours after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said women in India were treated unfairly.

Singh added:

“We are very serious about dealing with the problem and taking all possible action as early as possible.”

The Times of India reports that the government-run National Crime Records Bureau had been told to compile a directory of convicted rapists before the uploading of personal details begins.

The minister’s announcement comes a day after the Indian government revealed it had launched a judicial inquiry into the brutal attack on the 23-year-old medical student, who was airlifted to a Singapore hospital from Safdarjang hospital in New Delhi on Wednesday.

Doctors in Singapore are to “battling” to save the victim’s life after horrific injuries, which include intestinal and abdominal damage, said The Guardian.

In the attack on December 16, the young woman was raped on a moving bus by six — now arrested men — then beaten with an iron bar and thrown off the bus along with her male companion.

Widespread protests in New Delhi followed the gang-rape. Reportedly, the government is committed to an overhaul of the country’s laws on rape. Currently such an offence carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

    AN INDEPENDENT MEDICAL EXAMINATION OF THE VICTIM WILL SHOW THAT THERE WERE NO INJURIES TO HER INTESTINES OR OTHER INTERNAL ORGANS, NO SURGERIES AND NO GANG RAPE.

    (December 26, 2012) Like the RAW-dictated false autopsy report of severe injuries on the police constable who died during protests and the Lohia Hospital doctors who found no injuries on the constable ordered to report to police station with all their records to be intimidated and forced to alter them, the victim of the fabricated gang rape has been flown to Singapore to avoid an independent medical examination that I suggested on December 25 '12 that would have been easy in India — though not by Naresh Trehan who works with RAW and took care of Anna Hazare during his RAW-sponsored fake fasts I have described at JoinIndiaWarOfIndependenceDOTblogspotDOTcom — which would have shown that there were no injuries to her intestines or other internal organs, no surgeries and no gang rape, to be treated by CIA-controlled American-British doctors and undergo fictitious organ transplants which will explain the absence of injuries to the internal organs and, if necessary, a fictitious death with a CIA-RAW-created autopsy report.

    RAW IS REMOVING MY POSTED COMMENTS. SAVE THIS ON YOUR COMPUTER AND PASS IT ON.
    (December 19, 2012): The outrage at the gang rape and brutalization of a girl in New Delhi has been engineered and the incident itself fabricated by RAW to divert attention from its trafficking of Indian children to be used as food: RAWsTraffickingOfIndianChildrenDOTblogspotDOTcom. There is a large and growing market for the meat of Indian children in certain countries. A large number of Indians in the Meerut area and elsewhere are employed in this industry — the busting of "a 150-member gang, which allegedly used to slaughter abducted children, roast their bodies and eat them after failing to strike a handsome deal with child traffickers" was reported at : dailyDOTbhaskarDOTcom/article/UP-another-horror-nithari-like-vampires-exposed-in-meerut-2878885DOThtml. The plans for Walmart's entry into India include a vast expansion of this industry, setting up better and more efficient supply chains and processing plants within India; at present the children are taken out of India to be processed.

    Chief Minister Sheila Dick-shit knows the gang rape was fabricated by RAW and so is saying she did not have the "courage" to meet the victim, so she can say later she never saw the victim and so did not know the gang rape was fabricated. The police are being "evasive" as the High Court said because the police know the gang rape was fabricated by RAW.

    (December 25, 2012) An independent medical examination of the victim will show that there were no injuries to her intestines or other internal organs, no surgeries and no gang rape.
