Pakistani ISLAMABAD Prime Minister Imran Khan said Monday he would like convicted rapists to be publicly executed or chemically castrated, responding to a question about the rape of a woman on a highway last week that sparked riots in the South Asian country .
Last week, a mother of two while driving along a major highway near Lahore pulled out of her car and was raped by two gunmen one of whom was arrested by police on Monday.
Khan said he believed the culprits should be hanged publicly, but added that officials had informed him that such an action could jeopardize a preferential trade status granted to Pakistan by the European Union (EU).
The status of the EU General Preference System (GSP-plus), granted to Pakistan in 2014, depends on compliance with international conventions, such as human rights.
However, Khan said he was also looking into the possibility of chemical castration.
The way the first-degree, second-degree, third-degree murder is, this [rape] should be evaluated in the same way, and when there is first degree [rape], castrate them. Operate on them and make them unable to do so, Khan said in an interview on a news channel in Pakistan.
Khans’ remarks came as Pakistani officials announced that one of the two main suspects in the highway rape case had been arrested and had admitted the crime. Officials said they also had a positive DNA match. The search for the second suspect is still ongoing.
Police took DNA samples from the site and used GPS data from cell phone networks to identify individuals who were at the scene when the attack took place.
The shocking attack sparked nationwide protests and calls for the resignation of officials as well as the public hanging of rapists in Pakistan.
This February, lawmakers introduced legislation on public hanging of those convicted of sexual abuse and murder of children, but the law was not passed.
