Description: "Dear Prime Minister, This Committee was constituted by GOI Notification No. SA (3003)E, dated December 23, 2012 to look into possible amendments of the Criminal Law to provide for quicker trial and enhanced punishment for criminals committing sexual assault of extreme nature against women. In view of the significance and urgency of the task, the Committee undertook to perform it within 30 days, which task has been completed. Accordingly, the Committee has prepared its Report, which is enclosed herewith. It is the Committee's hope that the promptitude with which this Committee was constituted within a few days of the brutal gang rape in Delhi on December 16, 2012, will continue to accomplish the task by speedy implementation of its Recommendations to retain public confidence in good governance. With regards, Yours Sincerely, J.S. Verma [Committee Chair]"
