Committing rape in China may result in sentencing of a fixed-term imprisonment from three years to ten years, and if one of a list of “serious circumstances” spelled out in The PRC Criminal Law happens, a fixed-term imprisonment from ten years up to the death penalty may be imposed.  The “serious circumstances” include (i) raping women or minors; (ii) raping a number of women or girls under the age of fourteen; (iii) raping a woman in public; (iv) raping in rotation by more than two offenders; and (v) causing serious injury or death to the victim or any other serious consequences.

    for Gang Rape
    Pakistan had passed law for punishment with death

    Only a murderer should be liable for death penalty not a rapist.
    An imprisonment for the term of 10 years should be for the person who commits rape.
    In 10 years the person will be sorry for his crime and change himself.

    Death Penalty no He will die and feel no pain or guilt just die,But the girl will suffer from rape so he should also be harassed in public and lifetime Imprisonment.
