Goa Chief Minister Pramod Sawant has been criticised for his remarks in connection to the rape of two minor girls on a Goa beach.
“When 14-year-olds stay on the beach the whole night, the parents need to introspect. Just because children don’t listen, we cannot put the responsibility on the government and police.”
“Teenagers should not spend nights on beaches. I want to point out that of the 10 youths who went to the beach for a party, four stayed there the whole night – two boys and two girls.”
Four men posing as policemen at Goa’s Benaulim Beach allegedly raped two minor girls and blackmailed them. They threatened them to upload the pictures of the incident if they’ll not pay them Rs 65,000.
The four accused – 21-year-old Asif Hateli, 33-year-old Rajesh Mane, 31-year-old Gajanand Chinchankar, and 19-year-old Nitin Yabbal, are booked under Indian Penal Code, Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, and the Goa Children’s Act
