Bhopal: A man has been arrested for allegedly raping his four-year-old daughter in Bhopal. The news comes as the government is grappling to bring a tougher anti-rape law into existence.
Women activists feel that a stronger law is needed to check the soaring sex crime graph. The proposed changes in the anti-rape law received mixed reactions from parents and youngsters.
The new anti-rape law accepts Justice Verma's recommendation to lower the age for consensual sex from 18 years to 16 years. Instead of the term sexual assault, the new anti-rape law brings back the word rape, thereby not making it gender-neutral. However, the new law rejects marital rape.
