Jodhpur: Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Saturday urged the Chief Justice of India and other senior judges to ensure a mechanism to monitor the disposal of rape cases.
“I would urge the CJI and other senior judge that now there must be a mechanism to monitor the disposal of these cases so that India’s stature as a proud country governed by rule of law must be restored at the earliest,” Prasad said, and assured government funding for it.
“The women of the country are under pain and distress. They are crying for justice,” he said.
“In the law relating to women violence, we have already laid down capital punishment and other severe punishment including completion of trial in two months time,” he added.
“We need to reflect more on having attraction of talent in our subordinate judiciary. We should have a good talent pool of judges. The time has come that we need to have greater induction of talent in the judiciary,” he said.
Law Minister was speaking during the inauguration of a new building of the Rajasthan High Court in Jodhpur.
