Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to fast-track rape cases involving rape of minors if he was serious about providing justice.

Gandhi tweeted that in 2016, a total of 19,675 rapes of minors were reported and called it shameful.

"PM should fast-track these cases and punish the guilty if he is serious about providing 'justice for our daughters'," he said. 

PM Modi last week referred to the rape and killing of a minor in Jammu and Kashmir and the rape of a teenager in Uttar Pradesh, saying justice will be done to the victims and no culprit will be allowed to escape.
