Kareena Kapoor calls for reassessment of rape laws in India

Mumbai: Bollywood actress Karena Kapoor on Tuesday called for the reassessment of the existing law of rape in India, after an incident of gang rape with a girl in new Delhi.
On December 17, a para-medical student, who was travelling in a bus with her male friend, was gangraped inside the vehicle and then thrown out of it on the night of December 17.
 ”Whatever happened, it really should not have happened. In our country, we always take safety measures after any shocking incident happens. I definitely would like to say that getting justice in the country is really time taking. Our laws should be reassessed. Justice has to happen faster,” she said.
“I read today that there are 40 impending cases of rape, where victims are still awaiting justice. By saying that a woman should not go out at night should not be a solution to this problem. Being a modern woman, I don’t support such statements. And being a modern woman, I like to party late.
