Outrage after India’s top policeman Ranjit Sinha says ‘if you can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it’
India’s top police official apologized Wednesday for saying, “If you can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it,” a remark that has outraged women across the country.
Central Bureau of Investigation chief Ranjit Sinha made the remark Tuesday during a conference about illegal sports betting and the need to legalize gambling. The CBI, the country’s premier investigative agency, is India’s equivalent of the FBI.
“If you cannot enforce the ban on betting, it is like saying, ’If you can’t prevent rape, you enjoy it,”’ he said. (Photo: AP Photo/Mustafa Quraishi, File)
