Azam Khan creates controversy again; advices rape victim to stop seeking 'publicity'

Uttar Pradesh minister Azam Khan who is best known for his controversial statements has done it again. This time the senior Samajwadi Party leader advised a rape victim who came to him seeking help, to not go looking for 'fame and attention' for her 'disgrace' or else she won't be able to face the world with dignity.

"I will take her memorandum and go ahead but she sure has gained publicity now. Her complaint is clearly in connection to the disgrace she is facing but if she goes around spreading the incident that happened with her, how will she face the world", Khan said.

The woman who was allegedly raped registered her case on 27th July and has been trying to seek justice since then. She expressed her anger and helplessness at not being able to meet Azam Khan regarding her complaint.

"No one is paying any heed to our problems. We have been here since morning and have been trying really hard to meet with the minister. But the corrupt police and administration have been hell bent on ensuring that we are not able to reach him. We were not allowed to meet him", the victim's advocate told the media.
