The government is seriously thinking to introduce legislation in the Parliament for strict punishment for sex offenders to curb incidents of rape and sexual assault, he added.
“I was especially thinking what would have happened to the children (of Motorway rape victim)… We all know how much trauma they go through,” the prime minister told the ruling and coalition members.
