The Madras High Court has called for a consideration of the castration of people convicted for child sex abuse. The court’s remarks came in response to a plea filed by a British national accused of pedophilia for quashing of the charges against him, as per a report in The Times of India.

The court said that the punishment of castration for child rapists would lead to ‘magical results’, according to the Times of India report. Justice N Kirubakaran, who passed the order, pointed out that the punishment is in force in several countries, including the US, as stated in the report.

It has always been debated in our country about the severity of punishments. What is your view on the issue, will it help to curb the rising no. of rape incident in our country.Will it deter the offenders from doing repetitive sex crimes.
