Kanwar said: “As the year 2012 was leaving, inauspicious phase emerged owing to the stars that seem to have led to the higher incidences of molestations and rape. This is really unfortunate”.

The minister stated that he didn’t find any reason to hold any male or female guilty for the recent upsurge in sexual crime like rapes.

“Our country is land of spiritual belief and philosophy. I also believe that just like the stars are responsible for the outcome of good or bad events, the incidents of rape too are consequences of the bad phase controlled by stars”, he said.
