Travelling in silent places is a risk. 

Karnataka Home Minister Araga Jnanendra have commented on the Mysuru gang-rape that the victim and her male friend should not have gone to the deserted place, and his claims that the opposition Congress was trying to "rape" him, by targeting him, following the incident has evoked sharp reactions from the Congress.

He also accused Congress of trying to gain political mileage from such an "inhuman" incident.

Hitting out at the Home Minister and the ruling BJP, the Congress said they are "incapable" of protecting the people of the state.

"Around 7-7:30 pm (on Tuesday) they (the victim and male friend) had gone there, it is a deserted place, they should not have gone, but we can`t stop anyone from going, they have gone. It is a deserted place and no one usually goes there as no one will be there," Mr. Jnanendra said in response to a question.

Speaking to reporters, he said there are concerns about the lack of police patrolling in such places, and that he was going to Mysuru and will discuss with officials to rectify the lapses.

Reacting to opposition Congress` criticism on the law and order situation in the state after the gang-rape incident, the Minister said, "Rape has happened there (in Mysuru), but the Congress was trying to rape me, they are trying to rape the Home Minister. They are trying to gain political mileage. it is an inhuman act."

"When such incidents happen, instead of exerting pressure to see it from a humanitarian perspective and detect (the culprits), attempts are on to get political mileage in such a situation. People will see it. I will not say much on this. Instructions have been given on what has to be done by the police so that such things don``t recur and we are at it," he added.
