The Cabinet once again failed to approve the draft of the proposed anti-rape Bill on Tuesday. There are differences in the Cabinet over provisions like reducing the age of consent from 18 to 16 years. A group of ministers will not consider the draft and look into the points of differences and come back to the Cabinet by Wednesday.
