"Since the matter has been raised in the House (Lok Sabha), we will seek a report on this incident of rape in Meerut," he told reporters outside the Parliament.

In Lok Sabha, BJP member Rajinder Aggarwal on Tuesday demanded a CBI probe into the alleged abduction and rape of a girl in Meerut district after forcible religious conversion.

This led to a verbal clash between BJP and SP members, with the latter protesting against the BJP's charges. Some members, including Giriraj Singh, were also heard demanding President's Rule in Uttar Pradesh.
