Shivaram Hebbar On Mysuru Gangrape

The Karnataka Minister, Shivaram Hebbar, replying to the allegations made by Congress in the Mysuru gangrape case said, “Such incidents of rape happen all the time. Incidents occurred during times of other govts too. These things have been taking place for a long time. It’s not that such incidents are taking place only when our party came to power. (sic)”

He added, “Women have been targeted earlier as well. Such evil persons who commit crimes are always there in society. This is an unfortunate and shocking incident.” Hebbar also said that the Chief Minister of the state of Karnataka, Basavaraj Bommai, has directed the Home Minister to investigate the matter.

Hebbar said that the survivor of the gangrape would be given support and the accused would be arrested soon. He said, “Demand for resignation in the backdrop of gang rape is what Congress is doing for political gain. Our government will initiate action on the accused persons. They will be arrested soon. The victim will be given all the support.”

Congress made allegations on the Chief Minister and Home Minister of Karnataka by questioning the law and order in the state. The two ministers are from Bharatiya Janta Party. Replying to the attacks made by Congress, Home Minister Araga Jnanendra said, ” The rape happened there (Mysuru) but the Congress is trying to rape the Home Minister. They (Congress) are gaining political mileage out of the incident. This is a heinous act and under humanitarian circumstances, they should be demanding early detection of the case. People are watching and they will decide.”
