    NEW DELHI: A city court caused a stir on Friday when it asked legislators to consider castration as an alternative punishment for child abusers.

    "Castration is the most befitting sentence which can be imposed on any pedophile or serial offender but the hands of this court are tied as the statute does not provide for it...Indian legislators are yet to explore this as an alternative to conventional sentencing," observed additional sessions judge Kamini Lau.

    ASJ Lau sentenced a man to imprisonment for his "entire life" for raping his six-year-old niece and directed the prison authorities not to give him any remission.

    "The message to be sent by the court has to be loud and clear, and that is 'do not mess with a child' and any person who meddles with the child, male or female, in any manner shall not be spared," the court said. ASG Lau added that while castration was a befitting punishment for child abusers, it could not be given right now as legislators in India had not yet considered the possibility.

    It also directed the Delhi government to grant a compensation of Rs 2 lakh to the victim as part of restorative justice, as the victim had not recovered physically from the abuse. The judge noted that the victim was still receiving treatment and her resistance level had decreased as she was suffering from recurrent infections.

    "The possibility of the convict having transmitted some infection to the victim while committing the ghastly act cannot be ruled out... It is cases like these which the ministry of women and child development needs to target for restorative justice so that the medical and legal assistance, professional psychological counselling, shelter and other support is provided to the victim," ASJ Lau said.

    The court convicted 30-year-old Nandan for rape, kidnapping and unnatural sex. Calling the convict a "live sex bomb", the court refused to take a lenient view of his act. "Society cannot afford to have live sex bombs who, if let loose, are a potential threat... particularly to women and children. The convict before this court with his track record of a compulsive sex drive requires to be kept out of circulation," it said.

    Nandan had kidnapped his niece when she was playing with her brother and took her to his house on pretext of giving her ice-cream and raped her in April last year. Nandan had earlier tried to sexually assault women in his family but the matter was hushed up to protect family honour, the prosecution had stated.

    The court noted that the minor was rescued from the clutches of the convict by her mother and aunt who went to his house in search of the girl. They had found the injured child crying while Nandan was sleeping after committing the crime.

    The angry young judge of India! Life imprisonment is enough Mam.

    The real merit of law would be to ensure that child rapers do not go scot-free,

    of course he is angry...the poor chap has to give light sentences to many rapists on a daily basis because laws are soft.

    The anger and frustration of the Judge is understandable.

    But the opinion expressed is Medieval!

    She must understand that civilisation has moved on!

    Judge should give only that sentence, which is empowered to him under the law, this sentence would be set a side at the first instance in appeal plus whole processes would be useless.

    Yeah it is very very serious offence, best thing should be that he should be kept behind bars for ever.

    Many European countries that claim to be "civilized" have this law in place.

    Chemical castration is the way rather than the...you know.

    Nice punishment.

    This should also include death sentence by firing squad (ONLY IF PROVEN GUILTY RIGHTEOUSLY).


    Being defensively guilty about everything is not the right way to preserve social safety.


    There's a reason why these punishments were there at that time and people then were not mindless lunatics too, you know.

    I agree.

    Anyone who sees children as sexual objects are the scum of the society and needs to be culled away.

    Poland is the only nation I know it to be a sentence. It isn't exactly known as the "civilised" part of Europe.
