Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa yesterday advocated harsh punishment like chemical castration and death for rapists.

The government would “request the centre to amend laws to ensure maximum punishment of death penalty and chemical castration for those responsible for rape,” she said.

Her call came in the wake of the death of the Delhi gang-rape victim that has sparked nationwide protests and demand for stringent punishment for crimes against women.
