Chief Justice of India SA Bobde on Monday set up a two-Supreme Court judge panel to speed up rape trials across India.This comes days after a 26-year-old woman was gangraped and set ablaze by four men in Telangana, which led to Pan-India outrage over women safety.

According to a report, CJI Bobde constituted this panel in the exercise of his administrative powers for the purpose of monitoring of the cases to ensure their speedy disposal in a time-bound manner.
