Coimbatore : All India Mallar Awakening Federation Saturday sought a ‘public hanging’ to the culprit, who was arrested on charges of the brutal rape and murder of a 7-year old girl in Pudukkotai district in Tamil Nadu.
In a memorandum submitted to the district collector here, the federation president, Manuneethi Chozhan said that death sentence should be awarded and executed in public, which should be telecast.
This would act a deterrent and prevent such crime in future, as the incident has become a question mark on the protection and safety of
the girls and women alike, he said.
The girl was kidnapped and raped and murdered in Aranthangi and a flower seller was arrested under POCSO Act in this connection.
By hanging the guilty in public Tamil Nadu will become a model to others in the Country, he said.
