'I Will Burn My Daughter Alive'
A defense lawyer in the Delhi
Gang-Rape case landed in trouble with his shocking remarks that he would
have burnt his daughter alive if she has been having pre-marital sex
and moving around at night with her boyfriend.
In response to a question posed by the media regarding the Delhi Gang-Rape which claimed the life of a 23-year-old in Nation's capital, Lawyer AP Singh said, "In case, if my daughter was having pre-marital sex and moving around at night with her boyfriend, I would have burnt her alive. I wouldn't have let this situation happen. I feel, every parent should adopt this kind of attitude".
AP Singh is the lawyer for two of the convicts in the Delhi Gang-Rape case. After receiving several complaints against him from NGOs and several organizations, Delhi Bar Council has taken his remarks very seriously and asked the complainants to offer their complaints in a written format, so that action could be taken. Lawyers across the country have been treating Mr. Singh's remarks as professional misconduct and deserves stern action.
