Taapsee Pannu, the Delhi girl who is going places in Kollywood, Tollywood and in Bollywood, has expressed her anger and anguish at the increasing number of sex-related crimes in the country against women in general and girls in particular. “Only very severe punishment can control this menace,” Taapsee said.
Speaking to newsmen recently, Taapsee said “It is really depressing and agonizing to read in newspapers about the increasing incidents of rape and sexual assaults against women in general and girls in particular. Child-like girls becoming victims of such brutal assaults is something which should shake the conscience of the society as a whole.
“Immediate and stringent punishment is the only way to arrest such criminal acts. If the judicial process takes its own time in conducting trial and awarding punishment to the accused in such cases, violence against women is bound to increase. The Centre should act at once in enacting laws in this regard,” she said and added that the increasing incidents of sexual crimes against women in the capital were rather distressing.
