The ‘controversial’ remarks made by former Karnataka top cop HT Sangliana in context of 2012 gang rape victim Nirbhaya and her mother just does not seem to diminish.
After the remarks about how good her own physique is and how beautiful the victim should have been, Nirbhaya’s mother has now written to the former DGP.
It need be mentioned that Sangliana’s comments had been made in an event where Asha Devi, mother of Nirbhaya was also a special guest.
In the program, Sangliana had advised women to ‘surrender’ while facing sexual assault so that their lives could be saved.
In her letter, Asha Devi notes that the comments have only gone on to disrespect the fight her daughter put up before her death.
She adds that Sangliana had displayed the regressive attitude of our society.
She also termed Sangliana’s comments on her own physique and linking it to Nirbhaya as ‘inappropriate’. >
