'Rape toh chalte hi rehte hain', says Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury on Bulandhshahr gangrape case
New Delhi, Aug 9: Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury on Tuesday, Aug 9 came in the eye of storm when she made shocking remarks saying that "rapes keep on happening".
Chowdhury was being questioned on the recent gangrape case of a mother and her teenaged daughter in Bulandshahr.
On being asked, she was quoted saying as, 'Rape to chalte hi rehte hain' while adding, "if they arrest someone after 10-20 days and think that we will pat their back then this won't happen."
"Be it the police investigation or something else, this has taken place after a long time. Now, we will have to see the future course of action because we are fed up of the situation where we hear someone or the other talking on rape everyday when we wake up", she further said.
Notably, Renuka, who is not news to controversies, has served as the Union minister of State (Independent Charge) for Ministry of Women and Child Development in the UPA government.
Uttar Pradesh police on Tuesday arrested the prime accused along with two other accomplices in last month's Bulandshahr gang rape of a woman and her teenage daughter.
The gangrape took place at the NH-91 in Bulandshahr on July 29 after the miscreants robbed the family.
