Delhi gang-rape case: Salman Khan wants accused to be beaten to death in jail

The Dabangg 2 actor says rape is the most third grade crime, and that society should come together to fight such incidents

Condemning the gang-rape of a 23-year-old girl in the capital, Bollywood star Salman Khan Tuesday said rapists should be hanged. “In my view, there should be a death sentence for all rapists. Such things have no role in our life. I feel disgusted after hearing such things. For me, this is a third grade crime. I also believe that there should be a norm that if a rapist goes to jail, he should be beaten till death,” said the 46-year-old.

The brutal rape and torture took place Sunday night when the woman along with her male friend boarded a private bus at Munirka to go to Dwarka after watching a movie. The woman was beaten up, stripped and raped by at least seven men who were inside the bus. Both the woman and her male friend, who was also beaten up when he resisted, were thrown off the bus near Mahipalpur.

Salman feels people should have zero tolerance for such crime and that they should try to stop it if they come across any such incident. “I think Indian society needs to be ‘dabang’ (bold) in their approach. I recently read a news where a girl was being molested and people standing nearby were making videos on their phones. This is not the real India and I don’t think if such incidents can ever happen in front of my eyes,” he added.

The actor was in the capital Tuesday to promote his upcoming film Dabangg 2, a sequel to 2010 hit Dabangg. Dabangg 2 releases Friday, December 21.
