However, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Surat claimed that culprits are now hanged within days.

Following the gang rape and death of Jyoti Pandey in 2012, the Criminal Law was amended adding new categories of offences regarding violence against women and girls and made punishment more stringent, including death penalty for repeat offenders.


However, it took them a year to award death penalty to the three accused men.

This seems contradictory to what PM Modi said in his speech, and people called him out.

The claims that PM Modi made does not really align with the actuality of the way rape cases are handled.
