SC takes up Suryanelli rape case after eight years

Following the view of Chief Justice of India Altamas Kabir on Wednesday regarding fast-track trials in rape cases, the Supreme Court today decided to begin hearing of the Suryanelli rape case.

A NDTV report quoted Kabir as saying that the hearings for the case will begin within three weeks.


The victim, a woman from Kerala who was gangraped by 42 men in 40 days, has been waiting for eight years for the Supreme Court to take up her case.

The case was named after the village in Kerala where the woman lived with her parents.

Inaugurating a fast track court in Saket district courts, Chief Justice Kabir said, "It's good to know that after the 16 December tragic incident, people have started raising their voice on crime against women."
