Murthal gangrapes: Cong MP Kumari Selja seeks probe into allegations

New Delhi: Congress lawmaker Kumari Selja on Tuesday demanded a judicial inquiry into the reports of gangrapes of several women near Murthal town in Haryana during the Jat agitation while adding that Jungle Raj is prevailing in the state.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour in Rajya Sabha, Ms Selja said that Haryana government was a mute spectator during the large-scale violence over Jat quota row carried out in the state.

On the reported charges of rape and molestation by Jat quota agitators near Murthal town, Selja said the state government's enquiry team cannot be trusted and demanded that the High Court should inquire into it. "We demand a judicial inquiry."

Haryana government has set up a three-member team of women police officers to look into the alleged incidents of rape and molestation of several women by Jat protesters.

Pramod Tiwari of the Congress also demanded a fair probe into the rape and molestation allegations.
