Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh assembly on Monday unanimously passed a bill to provide for the death penalty for those involved in the rape or gang-rape of girls aged below 12.

On November 26, the state Cabinet had approved the amendment bill that proposed addition of two provisos to Section 376 of the Indian Penal Code.

After the assembly's nod, the bill will now be forwarded to the Centre for necessary action.

State Minister Ram Pal Singh moved the amendment bill in the assembly, which got the support from all members of the house.

The amendment bill also includes provision of three years in jail for exploiting women on the false promise of marriage.
