The apex court issued notice to Azam Khan over his Bulandshahr rape comments.He had said that there was a political conspiracy behind-the-scenes of the grievous incident.
The Supreme Court said such comments will lessen the faith of people in the system. Azam Khan later clarified saying he didn’t targeted any opposition party by his comments.He explained:
“I never said there is a conspiracy by the opposition. I said that as the elections are near, we all should find from where these protests and incidents are coming from. I never said that this was a conspiracy by the opposition,” Khan said in Lucknow.
“If we were not sensitive about them, then how can such a quick response have been made. It is because of their pain that we are saying that the accused should be arrested as soon as possible and a proper investigation should be done to find out the truth. This case requires strict action,” he added.
