CHANDIGARH:: Haryana finance minister Capt Abhimanyu on Monday said the entire cabinet is worried over the recent incidents of violence against women in the state, while assuring people that such misdeeds would not be tolerated and culprits would be severely punished.
Addressing the media after a cabinet meeting, he said the government had taken a serious note of such incidents which had left a negative impact on the society as well as the state.
