Moradabad: SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav on Thursday said death penalty in rape cases was "unfair" as boys make "mistakes." He said death for rapists was not okay and if voted to power at the Centre, he would change the law. "Ladkon se aisi galtiyan ho jaati hain to iska ye matlab nahin ki phaansi de di jaye (Boys do make such mistakes but that does not mean that they should be sent to the gallows)," he said. On the Shakti Mills rape case in Mumbai where death was awarded to the rape accused, he said that if the party was voted to power he would try to change the law and also book girls who are making false accusation of rape and lodging complaints.
