After a miserable and completely heartbreaking incident happened in Kathua, J&K, India, I would ask question that, in this case, what punishment does Allah(swt) give which is defined in the Islamic laws?

As Allah(swt) is for everyone, please don't think this question as religion-specific, but in general what can be the most severest punishment given to the culprits?

Someone reading the question who is unaware about the news can read from here by BBC.
