New Delhi: Congress on Monday asked Asaram Bapu to withdraw his remark suggesting that the Delhi gang-rape victim was equally responsible for the crime.

"It is unfortunate that responsible people are making such statements. Some strange statements are coming from some quarters. They should refrain from making such remarks and withdraw the remarks," Congress spokesman P C Chacko told reporters.

He was asked to comment on Asaram Bapu`s remarks suggesting that the Delhi gangrape victim was equally responsible for the crime and she could have called her the assailants brothers and begged them to stop.
