Selja demands judicial probe into Haryana rape allegations

NEW DELHI: Congress member Kumari Selja on Tuesday sought a judicial inquiry into the reports of rape of several women in Haryana during the Jat agitation, saying “jungle raj” was prevailing in the state.
Raising the issue during Zero Hour in Rajya Sabha, Selja said there was “jungle raj” in Haryana and the government has been a “mute spectator” to the large-scale violence during the agitation in the state.
On the reported charges of rape and molestation by Jat quota agitators near Murthal town, Selja said the state government’s inquiry team could not be trusted and demanded that the high court 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.
