The magistrates should have the rapist castrated immediately. .. if the case goes unproved then the victim should be expected to eat the rapists balls... which I understand to be a delicacy in the region of Uzbekistan

I agree, it would be best to start with, 'if found guilty,' but the sentiments stated are quite understandable given the nature of the offense.

if it actually happened, let's not jump to conclusions yet, it's suspicion, and we are only hearing one side like always in news reports.
