‘Impossible for 4 people to rape someone together,” Mulayam

Samajwadi Party(SP) President Mulayam Singh Yadav  made another controversial remark on the issue of rape incidents taking place in the country, saying that while one person commits rape, four are named in the complaint even though rape by four persons is not ‘practically’ possible.

“One commits rape and then four more are named. Kabhi aisa ho sakta hai kya? Aisa practical hi nahin hai. (Can such a thing happen? It is impractical),” said the Samajwadi Party supremo.

Speaking at a program to distribute free e-rickshaws under a state government scheme in Lucknow, he said, “If one brother commits rape, his three other brothers would also be made accuse in the case.”

 

Khap Panchayat is back with what they are known for.  A young Dalit Woman has moved the Supreme Court of India against a Khap Panchayat in Uttar Pradesh for issuing diktat that she and her sister be raped and paraded naked in their village as revenge for their brother’s action of eloping with a married girl from the Jat community.

The 23-year-old Dalit girl from Bhagpat district in her petition to the SC has sought protection for her and her family.

According to the girl, her brother Ravi and a Jat girl were in love but were forcefully separated after the girl’s family married her off to someone else in February. The girl later escaped from in-laws home and eloped with Ravi on March 22. Though the boy and the girl had surrendered after Ravi’s family was allegedly tortured by police and members of the Jat community, the Khap panchayat decided that the boy’s family should be dishonoured to avenge the brother’s deed.

The girl in her complaint to the Apex court has also mentioned that their family home in the village was ransacked and taken over by the Jat community members following which they escaped to Delhi.

According to reports, the court has now issued notice to UP government seeking its response in the matter within two weeks.
