The law was voted last month stating that this will only be done with the consent of the convict as well as the special courts for trials.

Government believes this law would guarantee a speedy trial of rape cases perpetrated on women and children as courts will henceforth close such cases with four months. According to the ordinance, special courts would be established across the country to handle that.

Chemical castration for first offenders or repeated offenders was first introduced as a form of rehabilitation and subject to the consent of the convict. It initially stipulated that anti-rape crisis cells would also be set up to conduct a forensic examination of the incident within six hours.
