Congress minister's rape shocker: Hathras 'big', Balrampur 'small' incident

A minister in the Chhattisgarh government sparked a controversy by calling a rape incident in the state 'small', as compared to the Hathras case.

Shiv Kumar Dahariya was addressing a press conference when he made the comment.

He asked why ex-Chief Minister and BJP leader Raman Singh was tweeting on the rape case in Chhattisgarh's Balrampur and not the 'big' incident in Uttar Pradesh's Hathras.

After uproar, Dahariya claimed that his comment was misconstrued and he was speaking on the sequence of events after the rape, and not the crime itself.

Raman Singh had earlier tweeted accusing the state government of suppressing the case regarding the alleged drugging and gang-rape of a minor girl.

He had asked Congress leaders Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi to visit the state and demand answers from their party's CM Bhupesh Baghel.
