This refers to the report “Rape conviction poor, situation worsening: SC” (Aug. 27).The Mumbai case is yet another indication that rapists have taken the law for granted. The languid pace at which justice is being delivered is what encourages the perpetrators. Taking their cue from the journalist who is ready to spring back to work, the police should ensure that wrongdoers face the iron hand of the law.
