#PriyankaReddy: Rapes wont come down with death penalty

In the wake of the brutal rape and murder of Priyanka Reddy (26), several celebs, social media influencers and angry individuals across the Telugu States are demanding capital punishment for the four rapists. Among Tollywoodians, Ram Pothineni and Harish Shankar have called for instilling fear in everyone by meting out summary punishment to the culprits. By this, they mean death penalty or castration.

But does death penalty help? As per experts, it doesn't. Top cop Arun Bothra has this to say, "Take it from me. Law with death penalty alone won't help much. Rape can be controlled only if we can ensure professional investigation and prosecution that results in conviction in every case. It is not severity but the certainty of punishment that deters crime."

Capital punishment is overrated. Even castration of the genitals of rapists will be savage.
