Karnataka: Horrible politics around the Mysuru gang-rape following the unexpected statement by the state Home Minister



The Karnataka Congress has slammed state Home Minister Araga Jnanendra's statement in the wake of the horrible Mysuru gang-rape tragedy. The Home Minister claimed that the rape victim and her male companion went to a barren spot where the crime took place, and that the victim shouldn't have gone to such a remote location, blaming the victim. He stated that he will travel to that location in Mysuru to assess the situation and developments there. The government and the police department have taken the gang-rape event in Mysuru "seriously," according to Araga Jnanendra, and all attempts are being made to apprehend the perpetrators.
While describing the incident, he accused the Congress party of attempting to get political mileage from it, adding that the Congress is 'trying to rape him' in a completely repulsive and unforgivable use of words. "They (the victim and her friend) went there at 7-7:30 p.m.; it is a barren place. First and foremost, they should not have gone there at that time. We don't have the authority to tell people not to do anything. "I'm going there today to assess the situation and take stock of events," Araga Jnanendra said, adding, "Congress is attempting to rape me."
Responding angrily to the Home Minister's outrageous words and pushing the issue forward politically, Karnataka Congress Chief DK Shivakumar dared the DGP to arrest all Congress leaders who are "raping" the Home Minister.
