With 40 rapes a month, Punjab not safest: Capt
Chandigarh: Condemning the Jalandhar gangrape, Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh on Friday expressed concern over the rise in cases of rapes in the state. "It is shocking that even after 10 days of the incident, none of the accused have been arrested. This reflects how casually the police take such a serious offence. He added that the government must ensure that the life of the young girl, who is just 14, is saved and she is provided best possible treatment," he said in a press statement.
Having a dig at Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal's claims of Punjab being the safest state in the country, he said, "The government has itself admitted that on an average 40 cases of rape are reported in the state every month.
This cannot be described to be the safest state. The government's casual attitude can be gauged from the fact that 12 rapists convicted and sentenced by various courts were pardon by it last year."
