Lucknow: At a time when the whole nation is raging over the brutal gang-rape of a woman photojournalist in Mumbai, a Samajwadi Party leader on Saturday came up with a bizzare approach to stop such heinous incidents.

Underlining that there was a need to change mindset of the society, Naresh Agarwal said education and attention to what clothes are worn are also important.

Reacting to Agarwal`s comment, Congress spokesperson Raj Babbar said that men advise women what to wear.

"Our men wear what they want but advise women what to wear," said Babbar.

The investigation into the gang-rape of the photojournalist two days ago in Mumbai inched ahead today as police nabbed another of the four absconding accused, taking the total arrests to two so far.

In one of the biggest manhunts launched in the city, 20 teams of local police and Crime Branch personnel have been formed to nab the remaining three absconders.

Based on accurate descriptions by the victim and her male colleague who was with her just before the crime occurred, police released sketches of the accused which have been circulated to all police stations in the city and surrounding areas.

The girl was gang-raped while she was at work shooting the deserted Shakti Mills Compound, near Mahalaxmi railway station.
