Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan on Sunday said that women should confine themselves at home to prevent incidents like rape and molestation. Khan’s statement came after a video of 14 men molesting two women in Rampur district went viral.

Khan, who’s an MLA from Rampur, said, “After all that happened in Bulandshahr, people should be careful. They should keep their women in their homes; women should also be careful and not roam in such places.”

He also attacked UP government for ‘failing’ to deal with waning law and order situation in UP. He said, “In the last few days, there have been several rapes, mass rapes, murders, robberies… They’ve set a record. It seems that the government has sent a message to the criminals that it’s your government, do whatever you want.”

Taking a dig at the Yogi Aditynath led government, he said, “Such crimes is not possible without government’s backing. There has been a flood of such incidents since the government has changed.”
