Law Min ready with draft to set up special fast track courts to try rape cases

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

New Delhi: The Law Ministry has come up with a proposal to set up "special" fast track courts across India to try rape cases as part of a larger scheme to strengthen infrastructure for better investigation and swift prosecution in such cases.

Following discussions with the Home Secretary, the Department of Justice in the Law Ministry has prepared a draft scheme for setting up of "special fast track courts" to try rape cases. On June 14, the department had informed the Cabinet Secretary that the draft is ready and awaiting approval of the Law Minister.

The new scheme is part of an ordinance recently promulgated to allow courts to award the death penalty to those convicted of raping children aged up to 12 years.
