"The Indian legislatures are yet to take notice of this alarming situation and address the issue with all seriousness by exploring the possibility of alternative sentences of surgical castration or chemical castration, particularly in cases of minors, serial offenders and child molesters," she said.

I agree with this! Castration should be the punishment. At least, the rapist will not rape another woman again. Serves them right for their wrongdoing!
