Samajwadi Party(SP) President Mulayam Singh Yadav on Tuesday made another controversial remark on the issue of rape incidents taking place in the country. Mulayam Singh said that while one person commits rape, four are named in the complaint even though rape by four persons is not ‘practically’ possible.
Speaking at a program to distribute free e-rickshaws under the state government scheme in Lucknow, he said, “If one brother commits rape, his three other brothers would also be made accused in the case.”
“Often if one person commits rape, four people are named in the complaint. Four people are named for rape, can it be possible? It is not practical. They probably say one was watching…another was there… If there are four brothers, then all four are named,” said Mr Yadav, the chief of Uttar Pradesh’s ruling Samajwadi Party.
