New Delhi: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar made a controversial statement during a public meet in Kalka, saying that the rape incidents have not increased.

“What is of bigger concern is that such incidents are happening among the persons known to each other. Many a times, they are together and then some days later file a rape case against their mate”, Khattar said.
