The Congress on Saturday submitted its recommendations for amendment in anti-rape law to Justice Verma committee. The party is not in favour of chemical castration as punishment to rape accused but on the debate over whether Juvenile Act should be amended to reduce the age, it remains silent. The party, however, is in favour of death for accused in rarest of rare rape case.
