Pakistan’s new rape law – severe punishment for rapists, provision for eunuchs

A new law has been enacted in Pakistan to deal with rape cases, with the aim of providing for speedy trial and severe punishment in the case.

Chemical use of a person convicted of rape under harsh punishment can also lead to impotence due to chemical use.

On Tuesday, the President of Pakistan signed the new anti-rape law.

Under the ordinance, a national register of people involved in sexual offenses will be created and a decision has been taken to keep the identity of the victim secret. Also, some criminals may become impotent by giving them drugs.
