IT (RAPE) MUST HAVE HAP­PENED, BUT SOME­ONE ELSE WOULD HAVE DONE IT: ALOK NATH

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - NEWS -

We made sev­eral at­tempts to con­tact Alok Nath. Our at­tempts were not met with a re­sponse. How­ever, in a re­ported con­ver­sa­tion with ABP, Alok Nath ap­par­ently said, “Kuch to log ka­henge. Nei­ther I am deny­ing this nor do I agree with it. It (rape) must have hap­pened, but some­one else would have done it. Well, I don’t want to talk about it. As for the mat­ter, if it has come out, it will be stretched. We only have to hear women’s stand be­cause they are con­sid­ered weak. Peo­ple will say any­thing to spoil the im­age. Leave my im­age, what­ever has been said, it is ab­surd. At one time she used to be such a good friend... to­day she said such a big thing. In a way, it was me who made her what she is. It is use­less to re­act to the al­le­ga­tions as in to­day’s world what­ever a woman says, only that will be con­sid­ered. In such a sit­u­a­tion, it would be wrong to say any­thing.” (sic)
