Azam Khan was reacting to a viral video showing a gang of youths molesting girls in Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur. “It is not surprising that so many cases of rape, murder and loot have taken place under the present government,” Azam Khan said.
Mocking the repeated warnings by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanth to trouble-makers, Azam Khan said, “After the Bulandshahr incident, everyone should try to keep women of the family indoors. Girls should not go to places, where trouble-makers roam free”
He was also the Cabinet Minister in the Government of Uttar Pradesh and has been a member of the legislative assembly for nine terms from Rampur assembly constituency
A video surfaced on social media where around 14 boys are seen molesting girls in broad daylight and filming the act in Rampur.
The accused could be seen heckling, manhandling and molesting the girls and passing objectionable comments on them. The girls could be seen begging to be spared all the while.
The perpetrators were so confident of getting better of the law and order machinery that they uploaded the video of their act on social media. The video went viral.
Police have now registered a case and arrested one of the accused. The investigation is on.
The Rampur incident is shocking especially in the backdrop of Yogi Adityanath government’s efforts at making Uttar Pradesh safe for women.
