R R Patil in soup over rape remark
Mumbai: Maharashtra home minister R.R. Patil on Wednesday courted controversy with his remark on the issue of checking rapes. “Many crimes against women happen within the confines of homes. Is it possible to have a cop in every household?” Mr Patil said in the Legislative Council. As his rem-arks drew criticism from the Opposition, Mr Patil said his statement was misconstrued and threatened to bring a notice of breach of privilege against concerned media houses.
