Lord Swraj Paul for tough law against rape



Geneva: Leading NRI industrialist Lord Swraj Paul on Saturday offered his condolences to the Delhi gang-rape victim, who died in a Singapore hospital, and said the least the government can do now is to toughen the law against such heinous crimes.

The brutal rape of the 23-year-old girl has shocked the whole world and had also underlined the need for speedy justice, he said.

"It is obvious that the law against such offences has to be strengthened and swift action taken so that it acts as a deterrent," Lord Paul said.
