Observing that the definition of rape was ‘’too narrow’’ in the Indian Penal Code, National Commission for Women (NCW) Chairperson and Lok Sabha MP Girija Vyas today said Sexual Assault Bill will soon be tabled in Parliament. Talking to mediapersons on the sidelines of a self-defence training programme organised here by the Delhi Police, she said,
“The Bill, with all new and wide definition of rape, will soon be tabled in Lok Sabha.’’ Asserting that the present definition of rape in the IPC was insufficient to provide justice to the victims, she underlined that sexual harassment and molestation should carry a punishment as stringent as that for rape under the umbrella of the new definition provided by the Bill.
