A senior minister from India’s ruling party has been urged to apologise after he said that rapes happen “accidentally”.
Ramsevak Paikra, the minister responsible for law and order in India’s central Chhattisgarh state, made the remarks as he spoke to journalists, according to AFP.
“Such incidents (rapes) do not happen deliberately. These kind of incidents happen accidentally,” he said late on Saturday.
Paikra, who is part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), was asked for his views on gang-rape when he made the comments.
