Paedophiles who rape children younger than 12 will face death.
A bill called, “The Punishment Method” was passed earlier this week.
It was passed unanimously.
However, campaigners believe rapists will now be more likely to murder their victims.
An Indian Chief Minister said, “People who rape 12-year-old girls are not human, they are demons.
They do not have the right to live. There are people in society who can be set right only by severe punishments. The bill will deal with them. We will also raise awareness in society against such crimes.”
