Rohtak (Haryana), Nov 18 (ANI): Haryana Chief Minister ML Khattar’s statement on rape seemingly justifying the act sparked a new controversy, receiving condemnation across the country. Khattar on Sunday clarified his statement and said, “Maine sehmati nahi kaha, maine between known kaha. Ye meri oer se kahi gayi baat nahi hai yeh investigations se aaya fact hai. Isse samajik taur pe deal karna chahiye, isme raajneeti nahi dekhni chahiye” At a function in Kalka town of Panchkula district on November 15, Khattar had said, “Sabse badi chinta yeh hai ki yeh ghatnayein jo hain rape aur Chhed chhad ki, 80-90% jankaro ke beech mein hoti hai. Kafi samay ke liye ikhatte ghumte hain, ek din anban hogai, uss din utha karke FIR karwa dete hain ‘isne mujhe rape kiya’.” He also said, "The incidents of rape have not increased... Rapes used to take place in the past and even today as well. (Only) the concern (over such incidents) has increased."
