Former Uttar Pradesh minister Azam Khan on Sunday took a jibe at Yogi Adityanath-led government over the Rampur molestation case, saying situation in the state is such that men should try and keep their women indoors.

A group of 14 men harassed and molested two women in Tanda district, a video of which one of them shot and posted online. Police arrested one of the accused, Shahnawaz Qadri from Kuwan Kheda village of Tanda, where the incident happened, while four search teams are hunting for the others.

In a sardonic attack at the BJP dispensation, Khan said looking at the accelerating cases of crime in the state, ladies should avoid going to suspicious places.

“There is nothing astonishing in the fact that incidents of murders, loot, rapes are being reported under this government. After the Bulandshahr incident, men should try and keep their women and ladies of the house indoor as much as possible,” said Khan.

“I would like to congratulate Yogi government that negligence of his government has got crime accelerated in the state. In few days of Yogi government numerous rape took place, many were murdered across the state,” he said.
