Protecting women's modesty is state govt's duty: Rajnath

Describing the molestation during New Year’s Eve celebrations in Bengaluru as “very unfortunate,” Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday said that protecting modesty of women is the duty of state government.

His comments came when journalists asked him about the incident and the remarks by Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara that youth’s “western ways” were responsible for the incident.

Asked whether the Centre has sought any report from Karnataka, he said it was not possible to seek report from states on every matter. “It is the responsibility of everyone to respect women. If somebody is seriously circumventing it, then it is the duty of the state to take action to protect the modesty of women,” Singh said.­
