Justice JS Verma, who headed the anti-rape law panel, dies

New DelhiFormer Chief Justice of India Justice Jagdish Sharan Verma, who headed a three-member panel to examine laws on crimes against women, died today due to multiple organ failure. He was 80.The new anti-rape law passed by Parliament in March incorporates some of the recommendations made by the Justice Verma Commission. The panel of Justice Verma, Justice Leila Seth and Gopal Subramaniam was set up in the aftermath of the December 16 gang-rape of a medical student in Delhi last year.

The Verma Commission put together its report in just 29 days. Justice Verma had urged the government to match his team’s commitment by implementing the changes urgently.

He was honoured at NDTV‘s Indian of the Year Awards on April 15 for fighting for justice for the Indian woman.
