    The Delhi Bar Council on Tuesday sought a response from A P Singh, the counsel for convicts in the December 16 gang-rape case, for his remarks that he would have burnt alive his daughter had she been having premarital sex and moving around at night with her boyfriend.

    In a meeting held this evening under the chairmanship of Surya Prakash Khatri, a majority of members of Bar Council of Delhi (BCD) took the view and issued a show-cause notice to Singh for his remarks soon after the convicts were awarded with death penalty on September 13.

    Murari Tiwari, secretary of DBC, said "although the issue was not in the agenda of today's meeting Singh's repeated defence of his statement forced the members to take a serious view and a issue show-cause notice as to why his license will not be suspended for making such "unwarranted remarks."

    He said Singh had to reply by October 11 to the Council's notice under the Advocates Act, adding "Singh's statement was not only against the moral and professional ethics but also damaged the reputation of the legal profession."

    The meeting was attended by 19 out of 25 members. Apparently referring to the 23-year-old victim in the December 16 incident, Singh had told the media in reply to a question, "...if my daughter was having premarital sex and moving around at night with her boyfriend, I would have burnt her alive. I would not have let this situation happen. All parents should adopt such an attitude."

    On September 13, a fast track court had awarded death penalty to four accused 10 for the gangrape and murder of a 23-year-old paramedic student in a moving bus.

    he was trying to get more clients of traditional values and trying to build his reputation as their lawyer... but he had not calculated this move of bar association. he was enjoying the fame and TV frame very much and to remain in main light he said all stupid things. now he is on receiving end :lol:

    In India honour killing is becoming a trend. I ask what is the problem to these guyz if somebody loves each other. I think this is 21st century you have every right to chose ur life partner and wisely. there should be no problem if a girl is having sex before marriage. after all it is her personal choice.

    there should be more strict laws on honour killings.
