Union cabinet approves ordinance for death penalty for rape of children
The Union Cabinet on Saturday approved an ordinance to allow courts to award death penalty to those convicted of raping children up to 12 years of age.

The move comes against the backdrop of the alleged rape and murder of girls in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua and Gujarat’s Surat district recently
The rape of a minor in Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao district had also outraged the nation
The ordinance would be now sent to the President for his approval.
