BIKANER: Asserting that Rajasthan despite having a woman Chief Minister in Vasundhara Raje is not able to provide security to the feminine gender of the state, Congress leader Sachin Pilot on Saturday expressed concern over the Bikaner rape case and demanded a check on all anti-social elements.

“In Rajasthan we have a Chief Minister who is a woman. Being a woman Chief Minister, she is not able to give a sense of security to our sisters and mothers and ladies who live in the state,” Pilot told ANI.

Highlighting that Rajasthan ranks number three in all states of India where incidents like rapes, molestations and exploitation of women are on the rise, Pilot asked the state government to keep a check on all anti-social elements so that such untoward incidents so not occur again.

The matter came to the fore after the minor girl's father alleged that his daughter was raped by eight teachers of a private school who also made a video of the heinous act.

The alleged incident occurred in April 2015 and the FIR was registered on Friday after the girl's father gave a complaint to the police.
