'Pornography another reason for crime against women. Though porn sites are blocked, we are not able to control watching them,' Reddy said.

Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh government is planning to bring in legislation to take stringent action for crime against women and for speedy justice wherever there would be conclusive evidence.

Talking about women safety, state Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that law would be brought in wherein stringent punishment would be meted out to perpetrators of crime against women and the case should be taken to its logical conclusion within 21 working days, read an official statement.

 

"Investigation of cases of crime against women should be completed in one week and the culprits should be punished within three weeks," Reddy said.

The proposed bill would have dedicated courts to deal with crimes against women and there should also be focus on blunting the social media that berates women and blocking porn websites besides bringing in prohibition, the statement added.

The new bill, which is scheduled to be introduced in the House this week, will also include the zero FIR, which means that police have to register a case anywhere irrespective of jurisdiction to instil confidence among women.

Reddy said that he was moved with the Telangana rape and murder case that has shaken the nation and the subsequent events where the culprits died in an encounter.

 

Those who post negatively about women should be afraid of punishment and such things would not stop unless stringent actions are taken. For the same, the government was in the process of introducing 354 (E), he stated.

"Our government has closed 43,000 belt shops in villages across the state. We cancelled permissions to permit rooms in wine shops in order to decrease the consumption of alcohol," said the Chief Minister.

"Pornography is another reason for crime against women. Though porn sites are blocked, we are not able to control watching them. A new bill will be introduced in Assembly addressing all these issues," he said.
