Women Cry Rape To Get Back At Ex-Boyfriends
Women Cry Rape: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Saturday waded into yet another controversy by suggesting that women file false rape cases only to get back at estranged male friends.
Addressing a public gathering in the state, Mr Khattar began by denying reports that Haryana has witnessed a spike in rape cases in recent years. “Rapes used to happen earlier and they are happening now. It’s only the concerns that have increased,” he said.
The Chief Minister then went on to speak on the biggest “concern”, which – according to him – was the newfound proclivity of women to lodge rape cases. “Around 80-90% of the rape and molestation cases happen between people who are familiar with each other. They roam around together for days, and when they finally squabble one day, the woman files an FIR saying that she has been raped,” he said.
