People like the four lorry workers accused of raping and killing a young woman veterinarian in Telangana should be lynched in public, Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan said on Monday.
Bachchan's intervention in the Upper House of Parliament came during a series of such speeches by MPs on the horrific incident. Another MP, Vijila Sathyananth of the AIADMK, said the four accused should be hanged before December 31.
The Leader of the Opposition, Ghulam Nabi Azad of the Congress, said the problem couldn't be solved through legislation alone. Azad said there was a need to "take a stand together against such crimes".
