Students demand admonitory punishment for gang-rape culprits
The Students Islamic Organisation (SIO) of India Friday demanded admonitory punishment for the culprits involved in the recent gang-rape and torture of a 23-year-old physiotherapy student in a moving bus in the capital.

Mohd Azharuddin, national president of SIO, said: "Admonitory punishment must be given to perpetrators that no one, in future, could even think of committing such crimes."

"It's an alarming situation for the society. The influence of cinema and pop culture is projecting women as objects of violence, lust and contempt."

"It's high time to rethink what kind of values to be driven in society. If we do not wake up, the society might face much more atrocious consequences in future," Azharuddin said.

He added that the gang-rape has raised many questions on our security system and that the flexibility of law encourages the criminals to commit such crimes.

The savage rape and torture occurred Sunday night when the woman and her 28-year-old male friend boarded a private bus, used for ferrying school children, in south Delhi after watching a movie.

The victim is battling for life at the Safdarjung Hospital here. According to police, five accused have been arrested in connection with the gang-rape.
