Pakistan’s new rape law – stringent punishment for rapists, provision for impotent


A new law has been brought to deal with rape cases in Pakistan, whose aim is to provide for speedy trial and severe punishment in the case.

Chemical punishment of a person convicted for rape, under strict punishment, can also be made impotent by the use of chemical.

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

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