Govt to create rapist database

Indian government has decided to post the photos, names and addresses of convicted rapists online, in a step aimed at checking sexual crimes against women.
The national database of rapists will be shared on the website of the National Crime Records Bureau in a few months, said Junior Home Minister R P N Singh on Thursday.
He said the idea is to name and shame them and to prevent repeat occurrences.
The announcement came 11 days after a medical student was battered with an iron rod and raped by six men on a moving bus in Delhi on December 16. She is now undergoing treatment in a Singapore hospital.
