Mysuru gang-rape: HDK suggests for encounter killing of accused, draws criticism


Team Udayavani, Aug 27, 2021, 5:31 PM IST

 

Citing the 2019 encounter killing of rape accused in Hyderabad, former Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy on Friday suggested for similar action against those who gang-raped a student in Mysuru.

Speaking to reporters here Kumaraswamy said that culprits in a sexual assault case usually get a jail time and then secure bail. This does not act as a deterrent for such crimes. The government here should take similar action that the Hyderabad police did, he suggested.

He was referring to the Disha rape and murder case in which Hyderabad police had encountered four accused persons.

Referring to reports stating that the accused were consuming alcohol in the place where the crime happened, Kumaraswamy said that government requires to put stringent regulations in place to curb drinking in deserted areas.

His remarks drew flak from Supreme Court advocate KV Dhananjay and tweeted “Sri HD Kumaraswamy wants the police to encounter the Mysore rapists just like, he says, ‘the Andhra Pradesh Police did it’. Well, it is the Telangana Police who did that. Isn’t it a criminal offence for a person to publicly demand that the police should murder an accused person?”
