Pakistan’s new rape law – stricter punishment for rapists, provision for impotence

A new law has been enacted in Pakistan to deal with rape cases, with the aim of speeding up the trial and providing harsher punishments.

The chemical punishment of a person convicted of rape, even under strict punishment, can be made impotent by the use of chemicals.

On Tuesday, the President of Pakistan signed this new anti-rape law.

Under the ordinance, a national register of people involved in sexual offenses will be prepared and it has been decided to keep the identity of the victim secret. Also, some criminals may become impotent by giving drugs.
