New Delhi, Dec 18: 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.

Two new-born babies, who were on baby warmers at the district hospital in Baramulla in North Kashmir, died last night as hospital authorities refused to start generator after electricity supply to the hospital went off.

The incident has caused outrage in the Valley prompting the health authorities to order a high-level probe.

The probe committee, headed by the deputy director Heath Services Kashmir, has been directed to submit the report on Monday, December 17.

The infants, soon after their birth on Friday, were kept on baby warmers in the newly set up Special Newborn Care Unit (SNCU), in the hospital. They were suffering from asphyxia.

The relatives of the infants said that on Saturday evening electricity to the hospital went off.

They said the hospital authorities did not bother to start the generator for at least four hours leading to the death of both the neonates.

At present, Kashmir Valley is reeling under severe cold and temperature in the evening dips to minus two degrees.

“We pleaded with hospital authorities that they should start the generator but they remained unmoved. We saw our babies dying but couldn’t do anything,” said one of the relatives of the infants.

Sources said the directorate of health services had sent three nurses to New Delhi for special training to operate SNCU.

However, after their posting in the hospital, the nurses would take their duty casually. On Saturday evening, none of the three trained nurses was in the ward, sources said.

The director, health services, Dr. Saleem-ur-Rehman said that the allegations were serious.

“They say the babies died after electricity went off and the generator was not started. We have constituted a team to probe the incident. The team will submit its report on Monday and we will act upon the report,” the director said.
