Law Minister K Shanmugam condems horrific Indian gang rape, says attackers should face the death penalty

SINGAPORE - Minister for Law and Foreign Affairs K Shanmugam has condemned the horrific gang rape of a young Indian woman in New Delhi, who died in a hospital in Singapore yesterday. He said on his Facebook page that it is a heartbreaking case and added that this is a type of case where the abusers should face the death penalty. He said he would often cite similar cases in discussions with people who want the death penalty abolished. Mr Shanmugam also highlighted a letter written by an Indian journalist Deepika Shetty. She had pointed out that in Singapore, young women can go about confidently at any time of the day and night, in spaghetti tops and shorts. Mr Shanmugam pointed out that this is a right they should have and is a right which society should protect. CHANNEL NEWSASIA
