Editorial viewpoint

It is necessary to have the fear of punishment to maintain law and order in society. People avoid doing many wrong things due to the fear of punishment. In India, harsh punishment is not meted out immediately for crimes, hence the number of crimes is increasing. It wouldn’t be surprising if someone asks that India should also have a similar method of giving punishment.
