The death sentence should be given as punishment for cold-blooded and pre-planned crimes. Criminals who commit murders that are not pre-meditated can be sentenced to life imprisonment. Rapes, especially of children and minor girls, acts of terrorism, crimes harmful to the integrity of the nation and its people, should be treated very severely. Fear of fatal punishment will curb crimes to an extent.
