In India, at present, there is no provision for the death penalty for rape convicts. Once the bill is passed Andhra Pradesh will be the first state to have capital punishments for rape cases. It will be called Andra Pradesh Disha Act which will be introduced in the state assembly on Thursday. Besides this, the state cabinet has proposed to increase the jail term from 10 years to lifetime for those convicted in sexual abuse children. It has also been decided that there would be special courts especially dealing with the cases associated with harassment of women.
