If this is a dream becoming a reality, I shudder to think what a nightmare looks like.

more details

the rapists were punished by village elders for the rape the day after the rape
According to CNN, village council leaders imposed a fine of 50,000 rupees ($770) on the accused the next day and ordered them to do 100 sit-ups each.
The men were so enraged by the penalty, they beat up the girl's family members for complaining against them and burned the girl to death after finding her at home alone on Friday.

Begs the question why rape is not only rife but takes such extreme forms in India.

I believe political correctness is dead, so..

a harsher penalty might act as a deterrent.
Maybe double the current penalty to 200 sit-ups?
