The Madras high court has recommended castration as a punishment for those who rape children in order to deter sexual assaults on minors.

The high court suggested the Central government should consider castration as an additional punishment for those who sexually abuse children.

The high court acknowledged its recommendation could seem “barbaric, retrograde, stone-aged and inhuman” but said traditional laws were not enough to cope with such crimes.
