Madhya Pradesh approves death penalty conditionally.

Tags: , ,

The Cabinet under Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan of Madhya Pradesh has approved of the resolution which proposed death penalty in the case where the victim is 12 years old or below as well for gang rape convicts. The Bill to the same effect is due to be introduced in the Winter session of the assembly as per the Finance Minister of Madhya Pradesh Jayant Malaiya.
However, there are hurdles to be cleared before such a proposal becomes the law. If it gets passed by the assembly, it would still have to be sent to the Centre and ultimately to the President of India for approval.
